Saatchi Online Gallery to Showcase 1,000 Curator-Selected Artists
Saatchi Online, the six-year-old digital gallery founded by the advertising magnate and art collector Charles Saatchi, is starting a new push to promote its platform for up-and-coming artists. This week the gallery is introducing its first exhibition under its new chief executive, Margo Spiritus, “100 Curators 100 Days.” For the show 100 curators from around the world each chose 10 artists to showcase on the site for a day. In addition to independent curators, the list of participants includes experts from the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Vienna Kunsthalle and the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. The 1,000 artists were chosen from among 60,000 represented on Saatchi Online.
