London’s Saatchi Gallery Will Host Prime Rave Culture Exhibition

Chidozie Obasi

The Saatchi Gallery, one of Britain’s most notable arts pearl, is about to open “Sweet Harmony: Rave, Today,” a mesmerising exhibition dissecting the history and influence of the acid house revolution. This project marks the first ever exhibition of such kind in the history of the gallery. Philly Adams, Saatchi Gallery’s director, together with co-curator Kobi Prempehpresent will conduct a radical public program dedicated to the rave culture, through the major voices evoked from the club scenes around the ‘80s and ‘90s.


Both parties have gathered some of rave’s most prominent commentators, counting the likes of Sheryl Garrat, Juan Rincon, and Craig Richards, to name a few. Adding to the list are contributors who are dynamically taking part in the 21st century’s countercultural movement, such as photographers Tom Hunter, Dave Swindells and Vinca Petersen.

“Sweet Harmony: Rave, Today” opens its doors on July 12th 2019, and will feature typographic accounts, photo stories, live music events, talks and more. The exhibition will conclude on September 14th, 2019.

Tickets can be easily found here.
