2018 (Nov) Cash is King – The Saatchi Gallery London
Cash is King - The Art of Defaced banknotes. The exhibition from Carrie Reichardt and Bob Osborne at the Saatchi Gallery
The book didn’t disappoint and neither did the exhibition. Cash is King, possibly the most anticipated urban art show of the year, packed out the Saatchi Gallery and brought a little bit of refreshing anarchy to Chelsea. An area where of course, the phrase ‘cash is king’ is absolutely true.
Curated by Olly Walker, his shows at the Saatchi have really started to open up a whole new level of awareness for urban artists. Cash is King is just the latest but with the amount of contributing artists and eagerness of the punters, must surely be the most satisfying.
The storming success of last summer’s Cash is King - The Art of Defaced Banknotes book, which was launched at The Saatchi Gallery with a sell out exhibiton of framed and affordable money art from all over the world has led to a massive demand for Cash is King 2.
The limited edition of 1000 hardback Cash is King books, all signed and numbered by artists Bob Osborne and Carrie Reichardt, found its rightful place into the permanent collection of The British Museum and The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge as well as being sought after by countless galleries and private collectors. So what started as a fun project has gathered pace and become a piece of Art History.
Cash is King 2 will follow the format of the first book with 172 pages of colour illustrations in hardback with a dustjacket ripe for defacing and fascinating texts by academics and the artists themselves.
We have managed to get some outstanding curators on board who have bought in artists from all over the world.
