Saatchi Online has launched a new initiative where 100 curators each select works by ten of the 60,000 artists exhibiting on the website, revealing their choices over the next 100 days…
Saatchi Online launched in 2006 with the aim of providing exposure for artists without gallery representation, and as a means for them to sell their work (with Saatchi’s taking a commission on each sale). To date the online gallery has over 60,000 artists on its site representing a wide range of disciplines and media.
From this huge collection the curators have chosen ten pieces of work each, and each choice of ten will be revealed over the next three months. Britt Salvesen, curator and department head of prints and drawings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, revealed her selection yesterday (two of her chosen artworks are shown here).
The curators themselves hail from all over the world and include Alessandro Vincentelli, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; Daria de Beauvais, Palais de Tokyo, Paris; John Zarobell, MoMA, San Francisco; Peter MacGill, Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York City; and Lara Boubnova, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia.
As they accrue selections over the next 100 days, all the curated artworks will be collected at saatchionline.com/100curators.
