Description

The most shocking of all British museums, the Saatchi Gallery is famous for its exhibitions of conceptual contemporary art not always accessible to the general public. The gallery was started by the personal collection of art dealer Charles Saatchi, who once decided to put his impressive collection of paintings and installations of his contemporaries on public display.

The Saatchi Gallery’s exhibits shock and awe visitors, often bewilder and almost always astonish them.

Today this unusual museum is located in Chelsea, in a former barracks building, and occupies four floors. The exhibit changes from time to time, but what remains constant is the effect the exhibits have on visitors – shock, awe, often bewilderment, and almost always amazement. The most famous art objects during the gallery’s existence are the controversial works of Demian Hirst and Mark Quinn, including animals cut up and placed in formaldehyde and heads cast from frozen blood.
