Art Gallery attracts groundbreaking international works Back
16 May 2011
It's big. It's bold. It's coming.
The audacious work of more than 40 of Britain’s young red-hot contemporary artists arrives at the Art Gallery of South Australia on 30 July.
Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide: British Art Now will be the Gallery's largest exhibition ever and the first by London's cutting-edge Saatchi Gallery to visit our shores.
The Art Gallery of South Australia is the only Australian venue for this must-see exhibition curated by the Saatchi Gallery.
Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide: British Art Now brings together the audacious best of contemporary art straight from London’s internationally acclaimed Saatchi Gallery – arguably the biggest influence on contemporary British art over the past 25 years. It features groundbreaking works that challenge conventional artistic sensibilities, created by more than forty of the new generation of daring British contemporary artists.
Also on display with Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide is Tracey Emin’s controversial My Bed, one of the most iconic works of art of the twentieth century. My Bed sparked a furore as a Turner Prize nomination in 1999 for its confessional revelations of the artist’s sexual exploits and self-destructive lifestyle and became a signifier for the ‘shock’ strategies of the YBAs.
The Saatchi Gallery in Adelaide: British Art Now exhibition will be open from 30 July to 23 October 2011.
