Going under the same moniker as the now-cult status Netflix anthology series, the Saatchi Gallery’s latest showcase ‘Black Mirror’ is one we’re charting as a can’t-miss moment for a weekend of culture.

In place of dramatising a futuristic, high-tech reality à la its namesake, the exhibition instead picks apart the art world’s role in social satire – questioning societal norms, and emphasising the importance of art in dissecting pre-existing power structures.

Featuring a plethora of contemporary artists – 26 in total, including Turner Prize-nominated photographer, Richard Billingham, collage artist, John Stezaker, comedic performance artist, Bedwyr Williams, and illustrator, Aleksandra Mir – the exhibition will make you question and laugh in equal message, and through multiple mediums.
