Post Pop – East meets West at the Saatchi Gallery

What is the best way to spend a Sunday? Well, the answer might vary depending on who you ask, and the options and choices seem infinite in London, however… A safe bet is heading down to SW3 for a relaxed and inspirational afternoon at the Saatchi Gallery – which has become one of my favourite spots in London!

Being a Camden/East London kind of girl, I hardly ever venture more South or West than Oxford Circus. In fact, I do my best to avoid it… It just doesn’t offer much for me, and it’s a terrible place to cycle – yikes! Oh well, for the Saatchi sacrifices must be made…

So, last Sunday was the last day of the exhibition “Post Pop – East meets West”, and according to the Time Out review, it would be well worth my time paying it a visit. So I did! Generally i wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the exhibition, and there wasn’t exactly one overall theme. It was sectioned into different topics like “Religion”, “Sex” and “Advertising”. Very interesting… I found myself mostly drawn to the communist and anti-communist propaganda (as always), so here are some pictures of my favourite pieces:

If you haven’t already embraced Saatchi, now is the time! Saatchi is not your typical SW London kind of exhibition, the patrons are varied and admirable, their membership provides great offers and special invites – and lastly: it’s free!
