The Saatchi Gallery aims to provide an innovative forum for contemporary art, presenting work by largely unseen young artists or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK. The audience for exhibitions of contemporary art has increased widely during the recent years as general awareness and interest in contemporary art has developed both in Britain and abroad. When The Saatchi Gallery first opened over twenty five years ago it was only those who had a dedicated interest in contemporary art who sought out the gallery to see work by new artists. The audience, however, built steadily over the years and by the time the gallery left its second home at County Hall, visitor numbers reached 600,000 per annum, with over 1,000 schools organising student visits.

Alma Enterprises Gallery was set up in 2004 in East London by art collective LAND which included Ben Tomlinson, Charlie Tweed, Siobhan Wootton and Sara Watkins. The current space is situated on Glasshill Street, Southwark - we moved from our previous space at 1 Vyner Street in May 2009. We have traditionally worked with artists concerned with notions of performativity and have encouraged a site-specific consideration to the inception of the work shown.
FOLEYgallery brings together fine line and obsessive precision in the disciplines of drawing, cut paper, painting and photography. Michael Foley opened Foley Gallery in the fall of 2004 after several years of working with notable photography galleries including Fraenkel Gallery, Howard Greenberg Gallery and Yancey Richardson Gallery. He is on the faculty of the School of Visual Arts where he teaches and lectures on issues in contemporary photography.
Other Criteria was founded as a publishing company in 2005 by Damien Hirst, Hugh Allan and Frank Dunphy, with creative directorship from Jason Beard. Based in Marylebone, London, we work directly with Damien Hirst and a number of established and emerging artists to produce unique artworks, art publications, limited edition prints, photographs, sculptural works, jewellery and clothing. We source artisans, printers and fabricators worldwide and the eclectic nature of our company means we make a wide range of desirable items of great quality and originality.
