There’s something new heading to London this Summer.
Saatchi Gallery in London will be hosting the very first major exhibition on rave culture and acid house.
This Summer, the exhibition will bring audiovisual installations, photography and more depicting rave and acid house in a unique setting.
Sweet Harmony: Rave | Today will bring “an immersive retrospective exhibition devoted to presenting a revolutionary survey of rave culture through the voices and lenses of those who experienced it.”
The exhibition will run at the Chelsea contemporary art gallery from 12th July to 14th September this year.
Recapturing The Acid House Scene
The exhibition is set to feature work from Aphex Twin visual artist Weirdcore, Seth Troxler as well as Phil Moffa (Lost Souls of Saturn), James Javelle, Irvine Welsh and more. Saatchi says that the exhibition aims to “recapture the new world that emerged from the acid house scene and narrates the ascendancy of rave culture with the youth of today”.
The gallery added:
the acid house revolution will be charted through typographic accounts, photo stories, live music events, talks and panel discussions by the movements’ architects and influencers. By reliving the revolution through the voices and lenses of those who experienced it, Sweet Harmony will portray the new world that emerged from the club scene of the 80s and 90s.”
