London's Saatchi Gallery is hosting an exhibition dedicated to rave culture

A new exhibition, Sweet Harmony: Rave | Today, will open at the Saatchi Gallery on July 12.

It is the first rave culture exhibition to take place in a major art gallery.

Through the work of those who experienced the first wave of raving, the exhibition will journey through the acid house scene of the late 80s and early 90s, relating its popularity to the youth of today.

It will feature work from a variety of key original players of the scene, including Turner prize-winning Jeremy Deller, Alva Noto (aka Carsten Nicolai), animator Weirdcore, multi-platform creative collective Project Zoltar and photographer Molly Macindoe.

The exhibition will also feature Transmission, a new immersive and interactive work from Lost Souls Of Saturn, the collaborative project of Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa.

Lost Souls of Saturn recently released a self-titled album that received wide critical acclaim.

‘Sweet Harmony’ will run from July 12 to September 14 at the Saatchi Gallery. Book tickets here.
