The Saatchi Gallery‘s one of my favourite museums in town. It’s one of those contemporary/modern art galleries that could make purists cringe and say “You call that art?” but there’s something about the way they curate pieces that makes me excited about art in this new era of artistic freedom. I remember feeling rather creeped out (in a good way!) by previous installations such as Kader Attia’s Ghost, Sun Yuan and Peng Yu‘s life-like sculptures Old Persons Home and Angel, and Zhang Dali’s Chinese Offspring; amused by Pure Evil’s Nightmare Series and Marcelo Jacome’s Planos pipas n17 (as I’ve never flown a kite); and inspired by exhibits such as Chanel’s The Little Black Jacket and The Times Newseum.
Go see for yourself! Current exhibitions include new art from Africa and Latin America plus Sam Taylor-Wood‘s photographs of Coco Chanel’s apartment. Entrance is free and there’s heaps of Instagrammable stuff. 😉
