Lost Souls Of Saturn (Seth Troxler / Phil Moffa).

Saatchi Gallery hosts Sweet Harmony: Rave | Today – the UK’s first major exhibition dedicated to acid house and rave culture.

London’s Saatchi Gallery is hosting a new exhibition centred around rave culture. Sweet Harmony: Rave | Today features audiovisual installations, art, photography and more. Lost Souls of Saturn (Seth Troxler, Phil Moffa) exhibit their new project Transmission, plus work from Aphex Twin visual artist Weirdcore will be presented. Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller is showing work, as well as Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto), James Lavelle, Conrad Shawcross and Irvine Welsh.

The show re-lives the period in which acid house and rave emerged through the creative expressions of the pioneers who experienced it. According to the gallery, the show will “recapture the new world that emerged from the acid house scene and narrates the ascendancy of rave culture with the youth of today”. It will be the first-ever exhibition to celebrate rave culture in a major UK art institution. Preview Lost Souls of Saturn’s project Transmission below.

Sweet Harmony opens on 12 July and will continue until 14 Sept. Visit the Saatchi Gallery’s website for more information, and go back to our Long Read on Weirdcore collaborations.
