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 home to dozens of free contemporary art exhibitions each year, it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular art galleries in London. Although, contrary to the many galleries which rely on distinguished artists to draw in the crowds, the Saatchi 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.
