As far as location goes, the Saatchi Gallery is right on the money.
Not only is it dominating Chelsea’s prestigious Duke of York Square, but the building itself is a work of art. Set in a Grade II listed 19th century building, the 70,000 square foot space is made up of 15 exhibition rooms; each boasting high-ceilings and expanses of bright, open space.
Being the only completely free contemporary art gallery of its size in the world, it’s no surprise that it’s also one of London’s most popular. Although, contrary to the many galleries which rely on distinguished artists to draw in the crowds, the Saatchi Gallery offers today’s talent a bit of a foot in the door; focussing on exhibiting works by younger, unseen artists or those rarely seen in the UK.
WHAT’S ON AT THE SAATCHI GALLERY
Something big is coming to the Saatchi this November. 100 years after Tutankhamun’s tomb was excavated by Howard Carter and co., a collection of 150 treasures is heading off on a world tour. London’s the third stop, and you’ll be able to see 60 objects that have never left Egypt before.
NOTE: The Saatchi Gallery is open from 10am-6pm, 7 days a week. Entry is free and last entry is 5:30pm. You can find out more right HERE.
