Heir of the famous collector Charles Saatchi to open a major art space in London
Daughter and heir of worldwide-famous collector Charles Saatchi, Phoebe Saatchi Yates will open her 10.000-square-foot gallery in London on next October 15, to exhibit and support unknown artists. In this operation, she will follow in the steps of her father, who is famous for having discovered the work of the so-called Young British Artists (YBAS) back in the 1990s. The movement included big names such as Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, and more, most of which were still students at the time.
The art space will be co-run by Saatchi Yates and her husband Arthur Yates, while Charles Saatchi helped in the project and the developing of the programme.
The new gallery will open its doors in the Mayfair area, also the set for blue-chip galleries such as Gagosian, Pace, and Hauser & Wirth, with a solo exhibition by Swiss artist Pascal Sender. Due to the current sanitary situation, an app has also been created to allow viewers to experience works remotely as well.
