Saatchi Gallery will open an exhibition of works by Helen Bur in one of its main gallery spaces on Friday 12 November 2021. The exhibition will be open to the public from 12 November to 5 December 2021 with free admission.
In this new body of works by British artist Helen Bur, painted figures are captured in moments of quiet action, self-reflection and stillness. Obscured in the pause of a gesture and imbued with a sense of the surreal, Bur sensitively depicts those around her as fragments of the bigger picture. Internal dialogues become social narratives and the personal becomes global.
Saatchi Gallery will open an exhibition of works by ALO in one of its main gallery spaces on Wednesday 3 November 2021. The exhibition will be open to the public from 3 November to 5 December with free admission.
Liminal features over 70 works created over the past three years. Some works were created before the COVID pandemic and held back by the artist for this exhibition. Other works were created during the COVID lockdown periods. Almost all are being shown for the first time.
Saatchi Gallery will open an exhibition of works by Cedar Lewisohn in one of its main gallery spaces on 29 October 2021. The exhibition will be open to the public from 29 October to 28 November with free admission.
The Thousand Year Kingdom features a series of large scale woodblock prints primarily made throughout 2013; a group of works that have not previously been shown together. These prints combine images relating to African and Mesopotamian objects from museum collections in the UK and Europe with recognisable details and depictions of contemporary life. The works are the antecedent to much of the visual language that Lewisohn’s current practice focuses on. The brutal yet delicate method of production plays with the idea of “primitivism” and the connotations of labelling artworks as primitive. In these works, images are repeated, and new contexts and meanings are created with the addition or subtraction of colours or abstract landscapes.

In partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS)
03 August 2021 – The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and Saatchi Gallery have partnered to present the return of the RHS Botanical Art and Photography Show in 2021. Running parallel to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in September, it will feature more than 200 of the best botanical artwork and garden photography by 34 global artists in celebration of these technical art forms.
The RHS Botanical Art & Photography Show 2021 will be the first presented at the Saatchi Gallery, London and will run for two weeks, enabling artists and photographers to showcase their work to an even wider audience. Accompanying the show will be a series of outreach projects for school and community groups including painting, drawing and print workshops intended to inspire a passion for botanical art and research.
For the first time, Saatchi Gallery will participate in the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show, featuring new works by British contemporary artist Dan Rawlings. The installation coincides with the return of the RHS Botanical Art & Photography Show 2021 exhibited at Saatchi Gallery from September 18 through to October 3, 2021.
The installation features never-before-seen artworks including, ‘Delays Expected’ (2021), a steel forest shell hand cut into the walls of a repurposed transit van. The works aim to spark a dialogue about our interaction with nature and our dependency on industry. Set at the heart of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, the steel structures demonstrate Rawlings’ fascination with the resilience of nature with the ‘deserted’ vehicle swamped and almost overcome by the plants and foliage of the surrounding garden.
