The Black Mirror: Art as Social Satire

Freedom Friday: Darren

The Black Mirror: Art as Social Satire, an exhibition at London’s Saatchi Gallery explored how political uncertainty is influencing the world of contemporary art.

A collection of 26 international contemporary artists showcased work that questioned power, politics, fake news and social norms, whilst bringing humor and political piss-taking into the Saatchi Gallery.

A few highlights of the exhibition included Wendy Mayer, whose piece was a creepy mannequin/pin cushion, and Valerie Hegarty, whose joy from her work lies in its destruction rather than its making. She says “My work poses as artifacts of known history gone awry, revealing hidden narratives and envisioning an alternative world order.”
