The 100 curators selected for the Saatchi Online project by Rebecca Wilson, Director of the Saatchi Gallery, London and Board Member of Saatchi Online, represent the world’s most prestigious museums and galleries.
LONDON.- Saatchi Online, a global platform for emerging artists, announces today the launch of 100 CURATORS 100 DAYS, a major initiative that recognizes 1,000 artists for their outstanding work. Beginning Wednesday, July 18, 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 over 60,000 artists that are currently exhibited on Saatchi Online. The entire list of curators for 100 CURATORS 100 DAYS can be viewed at saatchionline.com/100curators.

The 100 curators selected for the Saatchi Online project by Rebecca Wilson, Director of the Saatchi Gallery, London and Board Member of Saatchi Online, represent the world’s most prestigious museums and galleries. They include:

• Adam Budak, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC
• Peter MacGill, Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York City
• Iara Boubnova, Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Sofia
• Britt Salvesen, Head of the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, LACMA, Los Angeles

The stamp of approval from these curators provides a tremendous benefit to both artists and collectors. 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 exhibit 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 was started by the Saatchi Gallery in London in 2006 in order to help artists without gallery representation to find an audience for their work. It is estimated that over 1 million artists across the globe aren’t represented by galleries. Saatchi Online provides these talented artists with a platform to showcase and sell their work in an environment with an excellent reputation for introducing outstanding artists.
