The Saatchi Gallery and Christie’s are partnering for Thinking Big, a special auction of major contemporary sculpture and installation on 17 October offered to support the Saatchi Gallery’s continuing policy for free entry to all exhibitions, and free education programme for schools. To accommodate the monumental scale and scope of the work, Thinking Big is exhibited at The Sorting Office, a vast former postal depot in central London.
Thinking Big features the work of 50 artists who have been shown at the Saatchi Gallery, including YBAs, such as Tracey Emin and The Chapman Brothers, as well as newer talents such as Toby Ziegler, Kader Attia, Conrad Shawcross, Kris Martin and Sterling Ruby. Among the many leading contemporary artists included are Berlinde de Bruyckere, Gert and Uwe Tobias, David Altmejd, Karla Black and Liu Wei.
