Female Artists Take Over Saatchi Gallery

Recently there have been a lot of exhibitions at the Saatchi Gallery which had nothing to do with the owner's collection. This had us wondering whether he was interested in showing off his art anymore.Champagne Life is the exhibition to say that Charles Saatchi is indeed back — and this time he's focussing on female artists.

There have been so many stories highlighting the fact women are under-represented in major collections, and that their work is under-valued. This is Saatchi's opportunity to tackle this problem. An admirable idea.
