It’s time to cash in those frequent flier miles and head out to Heathrow. On October 9th, The Saatchi Gallery is opening one of the largest contemporary art museums in the world. The Saatchi has partnered with Phillips De Pury & Company to make this 70,000 sq. ft. dream a reality. The new headquarters will open with the show, “The Triumph of Painting”.
This latest endeavor is another sign that the center of the contemporary art world is changing. It’s not about money, it’s about effort and the refusal to wallow in complacency. Have a look at The Saatchi Gallery’s innovative website and you will understand.
