The Saatchi Gallery is a London art gallery dedicated to contemporary art and established in 1985 by advertising mogul Charles Saatchi. Over time, the gallery has been hosted in various locations across London but is now housed at the Duke of Yorkโ€™s Headquarters on Kingโ€™s Road in Chelsea. As public museums and art galleries in the UK it is freely accessible to the public, although this stemmed originally from a private enterprise. Free entry to visitors is guaranteed thanks to a corporate sponsorship.

The Gallery is regularly featuring exhibitions dedicated to individual artists or to collective groups of artists. Artists recently exhibiting there include: Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Philip Colbert, Karen Heagle, Philip Pearlstein, Bram Bogart, as well as an exhibition dedicated to the centenary of the discovery of Tutankhamenโ€™s tomb and its influence on contemporary art. The Gallery also has a very interesting shop, the Saatchi Store, selling quality merchandising inspired by contemporary art.
