‘ART WARS’ AT THE SAATCHI GALLERY
Curated by Ben Moore, Art Wars is an exhibition of Stormtrooper helmets that have been left at the mercy of some of the best the art world has to offer, including Damien Hirst, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Mr Brainwash, D*Face and Joana Vasconcelos.
Art Wars was unveiled at the Saatchi Gallery in October 2013, and was showcased on billboard posters by Art Below throughout Regent’s Park Station for the whole month.
2013 marks the 10th year that Ben’s brother Tom has been missing. Proceeds from the Art Wars exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery and auction go to the ‘Missing Tom’ fund, which was started up specifically to raise money to support the search for Thomas Moore.
