Post Pop: East Meets West
- 26 November 2014 — 23 February 2015
Post Pop: East Meets West is the first comprehensive exhibition examining why Pop Art, of all the twentieth century’s movements, has had such a powerful influence over artists from world regions that had or still have very different and sometimes opposing ideologies.
Widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the last century, Pop Art exploits identifiable imagery from mass media and everyday life to reflect on the nature in the world in which we live. The exhibition brings together some 250 works by over 60 artists from America, China, the Former Soviet Union and the UK, and will take over the entire Saatchi Gallery. Post Pop: East Meets West examines the relationship between western Pop Art and its lesser-known eastern counterparts including “Sots Art” in the Soviet Union and “Political-Pop” or “Cynical Realism”, which has flourished in China since the turn of the twenty-first century.

The Saatchi Gallery and Ministry of Nomads present a rare opportunity to see Nigerian born composer and performance artist Helen Parker-Jayne, of the collective The Venus Bushfires, play a captivating live set accompanied and interpreted by contemporary African dance.
Helen Parker-Jayne is renowned for her immersive performances which bring together wide ranging influences from Avant-garde, psychedelic, tribal and meditative arts to 70s musical pioneers such as Fela Kuti and Can.
The evening presents an exclusive opportunity to see Helen Parker-Jayne playing the Hang, a Swiss-made PANArt instrument, alongside the percussion, guitar and Pidgin vocals of the Venus Bushfires.
The hour long performance is designed to resonate with Saatchi Gallery's new exhibition Pangaea: New Art from Africa and Latin America.
