The British Art Fair is a new incarnation of the much loved 20/21 British Art Fair, taking place at Saatchi from 20-23 September focusing on Modern British Art. Over 50 galleries will fill all three floors of the space, presenting Modern and Post-War British art to a roster of dealers and art-fans alike whose knowledge and interest in the field is unparalleled. Both the celebrated and the lesser-known artists will show their paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures, all available at corresponding prices, including pieces by David Bomberg, Lynn Chadwick and Henry Moore. Book your tickets here.
Marriage, Film Still, John Sezaker
Saatchi’s most recent major exhibition also lands in September, Black Mirror; exploring art’s role in satire and how recent political uncertainty has influenced art. From 28 September – 13 January, a range of media from collage, caricatures, photography and installation will be on display and expose some of the anxieties that our modern obsessions create. During a time of collective unease, the carefully curated exhibition will emphasise the importance of art and satire in dissecting power structures, questioning societal norms and visualising unrest whilst providing a light relief to life’s uncertainties.
Our shops have reopened their doors and many of our restaurants’ terraces are open for alfresco dining in the spring sunshine. We want to reassure you that your safety remains paramount, measures are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
