You don’t need to be a lover of contemporary art to enjoy a visit to the Saatchi Gallery, but it helps!
Known as one of the most forward thinking and popular art museums in the whole of London, those staying at our hotels near the Saatchi Gallery can enjoy the amazing array of paintings, sculptures and visual arts from some of the world’s best artists and up and coming artistic talent.
Here’s just a few things that you must see if you’re planning a visit to London this month.
Black Mirror: Art as social satire
Art has long been a way to communicate social commentary, so the latest exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery takes a satirical look at today’s modern society with an engaging range of weird and wonderful sculptures, installations and artwork.
The museum is just a stone’s throw away from our hotels near the Saatchi Gallery, so staying here means that you’ve got the perfect base to explore this exhibition before it ends in February.
Opening in December 2018, Harder Edge is an exploration of abstraction, challenging and testing the abilities of a large variety of materials in the artists’ individual interrogations of colour, line and form.
Colourful and thought-provoking, visitors to the gallery are sure to enjoy browsing the collection for this exhibition as it has been carefully selected from seventeen up and coming new artists.
Once you’ve spent a few hours appraising these pieces of abstract art, you won’t need to go very far for a delicious lunch or dinner as one of the best restaurants in London is located at our Gloucester Road hotel!
Choose from an array of delectable dishes and sweet treats after your visit to the Saatchi Gallery and discuss the pieces of art that resonated with you during an after-dinner cocktail or warming coffee.
Out of Focus: Photography
A permanent fixture at the Saatchi Gallery, the Out of Focus exhibition has been delighting visitors with an interest in visual arts and photography for months now.
This gallery space has been opened up to welcome some powerful pieces of photography that each tell an individual story or make a statement. Once you’ve enjoyed a delicious meal at our hotels near the Saatchi Gallery, it is well worth heading over to explore everything this engaging exhibition has to offer.
Newspeak: British Art Now
Split up into two parts, Newspeak showcases the very latest in art from the UK meaning visitors will be able to view work from several rising stars of the future.
From the oil paintings on canvas that adorn the walls to quirky sculptures, this area of the gallery is certainly worth making a beeline for if you have an interest in modern art from home grown talent.
This exhibition can get a little busy at times, so plan your visit for early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the crowds.
