On 26th and 27th January, Saatchi Yates gallery will be celebrating the launch of CHEERIO publishing with an exhibition of work by Francis Bacon and John Deakin.

The exhibition will feature vitrines by Greta Bellamacina, James Birch, Jeremy Deller, Bella Freud, Blondey McCoy, DBC Pierre, Ian Sinclair, Martha Sprackland and Tade Thompson.

There will also be live talks, CHEERIO-commissioned films and readings throughout the two-day event.

A poetry reading in collaboration with CHEERIO’s poetry editor Martha Sprackland, The White Review and Offord Road Books takes place on Wednesday 26th from 13.00-14.00.

CHEERIO will also be hosting a live conversation between two fascinating memoirists: bestselling journalist, broadcaster and novelist Dolly Alderton and author of BACON IN MOSCOW, James Birch on 26th January at 7pm.

Dolly and James will be discussing art, life, friendship, Moscow days, Soho nights and Birch's audacious quest to bring, for the first time in decades, the work of one of the world's greatest artists to the heart of Soviet Russia. 

Tickets are £20 and can be booked here, which also includes the cost of a copy of BACON IN MOSCOW, an exhilarating memoir and CHEERIO’s first publication.
