The Saatchi Gallery

The Saatchi Gallery first opened 25 years ago, and is currently situated in The Duke of York’s HQ on the popular, and glamorous, King’s Road, Chelsea. The gallery offers a fabulous space to view contemporary art, with its high ceilings, well-proportioned rooms and wonderful lighting.

The gallery aims to showcase work by largely unseen UK artists, and international artists whose work has never been exhibited, or rarely exhibited, in the UK. In this way, the Saatchi Gallery has been responsible for spring-boarding many new artists into the prestigious UK art scene. The gallery’s mission to bring contemporary art to the widest audience possible means that admission to all of the exhibitions is free. This is quite a feat for any London gallery to achieve, as a commitment to their public. As a result, the gallery has built up some incredible sponsors over the years, whose support has facilitated many extraordinary exhibitions.

The gallery is also a strong advocate for education; this of course is in alignment with their mission to bring contemporary art to everyone. From animation workshops to fashion design, the gallery puts on well-priced events to teach the aspiring artist. A day out here, either wandering through the magnificent halls, or learning a new craft, is a day well and truly spent. Saatchi’s commitment to art and the public is evident everywhere.

The gallery includes a bookshop, café, bar and workshop facilities and is open 7 days a week.
