100 Curators 100 Days – Day 15

If you haven’t heard by now, we are very excited about our new project 100 Curators 100 Days which launched recently with a story in The New York Times.   For our 100 Curators 100 Days project, we invited top curators from around the world to select 10 Saatchi Online artists to feature in a collection.

Just 15 days in, some of the curators featured include Britt Salvesen, Head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, LACMA, Peter MacGill, President Pace/MacGill Gallery, and Matthias Harder Chief curator Helmut Newton Foundation among others. We’ve already been blown away by the selections made and the reactions from the art community as well as collectors who have discovered great new talent.

The project  has also peaked the interest of a lot of our favorite publications and websites.  A sampling of press coverage includes  The New York Times, Fast Company, Cool HuntingThe Gallerist and more.  We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support on  Facebook and the incredible dialog on  Twitter.

Love art?  Need a little guidance and advice with making an art purchase, or just interested in checking out some some of the amazing Saatchi Online talent that these top curators have identified?  Look no further than 100 Curators 100  Days.

  2. Thanks to the Saatchi Gallery Online for promoting art. We need the help and the name get’s us all out there. It’s always a fine balance between creating and promotion. Artists are sometimes not the best promo guys for their work, so Saatchi helps.

    It would be great if the curators wrote a little about why they selected the artwork beneath the image – as a platform to create a critical debate. Art is surely about looking at the world afresh, questioning, and spotlighting what thoughts often fail to express in daily life.

    Art for me is making visible the invisible.
