Saatchi Gallery

 
The Saatchi Gallery is a contem­porary art gallery estab­lished in 1985 by the advert­ising mogul Charles Saatchi (b.1943).

Its first premises were in Boundary Road, St John’s Wood, where the gallery played a prominent role in the promotion of Britart, exhib­iting works by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Rachael Whiteread, Sam Taylor-Wood and the Chapman brothers (Jake and Dinos), et al.

In 2003 it reopened at County Hall and in 2008 moved to its present home, the 70,000 sq. ft. Duke of York’s HQ, in the King’s Road.

The Saatchi Gallery aims to provide an innov­ative forum for contem­porary art, presenting work by largely unseen young artists or by inter­na­tional artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK. Admission is free to all shows – including temporary, curated exhib­i­tions – resulting in high attendance figures.
