Saatchi Gallery (London) ... sizeable (and changing) collection to the public. It has occupied different premises, first in North London, then the South Bank by the River Thames and Chelsea (opening to the public in 2007). Saatchi's collection, and hence the gallery's shows, have had distinct phases, starting with US artists and minimalism, moving on to the Damien Hirst-led Young British Artists, followed by shows purely of painting and more recently promoting once again art from America in an exhibition entitled USA Today at the Royal Academy in London.
Newest Review: ... a statement. Once you walk in you are seemingly drawn furthur into white walled corridoors and then hall spaces with 3 or 4 exhibits in one huge room, making them stand out even more be it with colour, installation or prose. Many and in fact the majority of works at the saatchi gallery are of course contemporary works of art if not incredibly controversial pieces also, but each and every ... more

Being a contemporary artist myself I am one major fan of the saatchi gallery, however you dont have to like the contemporary to enjoy the experience the gallery itself can bring. Situated on the kings road the gallery is a huge and remarkable building with strong and bold architecture, which in itself makes a statement.

The Saatchi Gallery has a range of modern to contemporary art, and is siturated in London. ~~~LOCATION AND ACCESS~~~ The Saatchi Gallery is situated in Sloane Square, Central London, a short 5-10 minute walk from the underground station. I was surprised at the lack of signs that showed where it was, and I was lucky I had printed off a Google Map!! If I was not as prepared, I may never have got there!! However, if you walk straight out the station and straight on , you'd get there eventually... ~~~ATMOSPHERE~~~ The gallery is large, with work well spaced out. The rooms are mostly neutral, with a white wall, well lit, and bright, ... Read the complete review

I first visited the Saatchi Gallery when it was on The South Bank in County Hall and saw an exhibition of Saatchi's more famous purchases...Tracy Emin's bed, 'that' Myra Hindley portrait and some of Grayson Perry's famous pots. It was an impressive contrast, all these icons of modern art in such a lovely old building. Devasted when it closed as it quickly became my favourite London Gallery, and sad to hear of Saatchi's fire when he lost many pieces, I was eager to see the new gallery which recently opened in Chelsea. (so eager I went before it opened just to have a peak) The location is lovely, in the park, just behind the King's Road, you wouldn't expect to find a ... Read the complete review
