Weekend 101 What's New

Weekend 101… Champagne Life at the Saatchi Gallery

To mark its 30th anniversary, the Saatchi Gallery has opened Champagne Life, the gallery’s first all-women exhibition.

Celebrating the diverse work of a talented roster of female artists, the exhibition aims to provide the chance to reflect on what it means to be a female artist working today, as well as addressing the issue of the glass ceiling within the art world and beyond.

The title of show was taken from a piece by artist Julia Wachtel, featuring Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (pictured above). The name of the exhibition also reflects the larger theme of the show, which explores the contrast between the glamorous art world and the often isolating world of being a working female artist today.

Stand out artworks include Alice Anderson’s ‘Bound’ and Soheila Sokhanvari’s ‘Moje Sabz’ (pictured below). We left feeling mighty proud to be female and more than sufficiently inspired.
