Known Unknowns is a major new exhibition at Saatchi Gallery featuring the work of 17 contemporary artists from across the globe, born between 1966 and 1990, from its own collection. The title refers to the artists’ status in the mainstream art world – whilst they are largely unknown, their respective practices are greatly admired by their artistic peers and seen as breaking new ground.

The show, which runs until 24 June 2018, explores a diverse range of art forms including painting, sculpture, video and mixed media, with a particular focus on the craft of art-making. The works deal with a myriad of themes that relate to the visual conditions of contemporary life, such as the exponential flow of images, the representation of the body in the Internet age, and the ethics of viewing versus voyeurism.

“These artists are not afraid to explore new media in thought-provoking ways, and each pursues a highly individualised practice,” explains the Gallery.

“They are a seemingly disparate group, yet together reflect the diversity and breadth of contemporary art in a globalised and increasingly digital age. While Known Unknowns does not offer an obvious unifying theme or ideological point of view, it presents its audience with a group of artists that are worthy of wider exposure.”
