The Saatchi Gallery is a world-leader in contemporary art, housing both permanent and visiting international collections of sculpture and art. It is open 7 days a week and admission is free to most of its exhibitions.
Over the last 5 years, the Gallery has presented 15 of the 20 most visited museum exhibitions in London* and is one of the world’s top 5 museums on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+.
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. Many of these artists are subsequently offered shows by galleries and museums internationally. In this effect, the gallery also operates as a springboard for young artists to launch their careers.
When The Saatchi Gallery first opened over twenty five years ago it was only those who had a dedicated interest in contemporary art who sought out the gallery to see work by new artists. The audience, however, built steadily over the years and visitor numbers now exceed 1.5million per annum, with over 2000 schools a year organizing student visits.
Free admission to all shows – including temporary, curated exhibitions wherever possible, is part of the Saatchi Gallery’s aim to bring contemporary art to the widest audience.
