Check out the latest Sensations…

 

Here at Grazia we’re all about news of the latest happenings in all things fashwan but we’re also partial to an exciting new cultural event or two. Get your cultural fix this week and head down to London’s Saatchi Gallery for the exhibition of the summer, Newspeak: British Art Now. The exhibition is the biggest at the Saatchi gallery since 1997’s controversial Sensation that catapulted YBAs Damien Hirst, Tracy Emin and Marc Quinn to mainstream fame, and ushered in the Brit Art movement of the nineties.

Newspeak is set to be a much less shocking affair though (you won’t find any pickled sharks here) but one that will prove that Brit art is far from over. The exhibition has been split into two parts as there’s so much fab new art to show, the first part opened on June 2 and the second opens in October, so there’s really no excuse not to get down there. The art is varied, ranging from classic busts and landscapes to modern installations and photography. ‘Again, it is a very rich moment for art in this country and the interesting thing is that there is such a range of different work that there isn’t a sense of one movement like before, there’s not one school that you could fit these artists into, and it’s this diversity that makes Newspeak exciting’, says Rebecca Wilson, the associate director of the gallery.

And until June 30 our lovely Grazia readers can enjoy 2 for 1 glasses of Prosecco at the Saatchi Gallery’s restaurant, Gallery Mess. All you have to do is bring along the Saatchi feature on page 124 of this week’s Grazia, and voila, bubbly in hand! Don’t say we never give you anything…
