Saatchi Gallery celebrates 30th year with first all-female show
To mark its 30th anniversary, the Saatchi Gallery will open Champagne Life, the Gallery’s first all-women exhibition on 13th January 2016.
Champagne Life will celebrate the work of a constellation of female artists, providing a rare moment to reflect on what it means to be a female artist working today.
As an exhibition, Champagne Life does not offer an overarching vista of ‘female’ artistic practice; nor does it presume to state that there is such a thing. Instead this exhibition will play an important role in approaching issues of the glass ceiling that applies to the art world as much as to the world at large.
Champagne Life features the work of Mequitta Ahuja, Alice Anderson, Marie Angeletti, Jelena Bulajic, Julia Dault, Mia Feuer, Sigrid Holmwood, Virgile Ittah, Seung Ah Paik, Maha Malluh, Suzanne McClelland, Stephanie Quayle, Soheila Sokhanvari and Julia Wachtel.
Champagne Life marks the Saatchi Gallery’s 30th anniversary and pays tribute to its commitment to supporting the work of women artists early on in their careers and providing them with a platform to showcase their work. Many of these artists have gone on to become central figures in contemporary art, including Cecily Brown, Tracey Emin, Paula Rego, Jenny Saville, Cindy Sherman, Rebecca Warren and Rachel Whiteread amongst many others.
