Saatchi's 100 Curators 100 Days

Saatchi Online launched 18 July 2012 a new initiative called 100 CURATORS 100 DAYS, recognizing 1,000 artists for their outstanding work.

Beginning Wednesday, July 18 2012, every day for 100 days Saatchi Online will reveal one curator’s selection of ten artists to be included in “the largest exhibit of its kind.” The curators have made their selections from more than 60,000 artists that are currently exhibited on Saatchi Online. The curators include:

  • Adam Budak, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC
  • Peter MacGill, Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York City
  • Lara Boubnova, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia
  • Britt Salvesen, Head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, LACMA, Los Angeles
  • Alfredo Cramerotti, co-curator, Manifesta 8 European Biennial of contemporary art, 2010-11
  • Carson Chan and Nadim Samman, co-curators of the Marrakech Biennale, 2012
  • Cecilia Alemani, Donald R Mullen, Jr. Curator and Director of High Line Art, New York
  • David Elliott, Artistic Director of the first Kyiv Biennial of Art, 2012
  • Eric Shiner, Director and Milton Fine curator of art at The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh
  • Tobia Bezzola, Kunsthaus Zurich
  • Khaled Ramadan, Nordic Institute for Contemporary Art, Helsinki
  • Marcella Beccaria, Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art, Turin
  • Daria de Beauvais, Palais de Tokyo, Paris
  • Alessandro Vincentelli, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead
  • Hendrik Folkerts, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam
  • John Zarobell, MoMA, San Francisco
  • Tricia Van Eck, MCA, Chicago
  • Catherine Hug, Kunsthalle Vienna

“The stamp of approval from these curators provides a tremendous benefit to both artists and
collectors,” Saatchi Online says. “Artists who are selected will enjoy greater visibility and recognition, while first-time buyers as well as seasoned collectors will gain confidence in buying art online, by having experienced curators handpick and validate great emerging talent.”

This is the inaugural exhibition under the helm of Saatchi Online’s new CEO, Margo Spiritus. “Our mission at Saatchi Online is to provide all artists with the tools, opportunity and support to have sustainable careers and to make a living selling their art. By providing a global platform visited by art lovers from over 190 countries each month, we are able to connect consumers and curators alike who would otherwise never have the opportunity to discover their work,” says Spiritus.

Saatchi Online, started by the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2006, estimates more than 1 million artists across the globe aren’t represented by galleries.
