After “The Revolution continues: New Art from China” which was a success with 400,000 visitors and “New Art from the Middle East”, the SAATCHI GALLERY of London is focusing its attention on new American artists. The exhibition goes on until the 13th September, bringing to international attention the new works of 32 American artists, characterized by originality and ingenuity of technique, and which recalls retro styles and abstract expressionism in trying to create something entirely modern. The exhibition, entitled “ABSTRACT AMERICA”, reflects on the concept of abstraction, at the same time as what is happening in Venice, Italy with the “Astrazioni” exhibition dedicated to Futurism 100 years after its manifestation and demonstrates how much this idea is re-invigorated by new life-blood and is revitalized through the interpretations of new talent.
The exhibition, which is being held in the Duke of York in King’s Road, presents the works of Kristin Baker, John Bauer, Mark Bradford, Tom Burr, Joe Bradley, Jedediah Caesar, Carter, Eric and Heather CHanSchatz, Peter Coffin, Guerra de la Paz, Francesca DiMattio, Bart Exposito, Mark Grotjahn, Jacob Hashimoto, Rachel Harrison, Patrick Hill, Ryan Johnson, Matt Johnson, Paul Lee, Chris Martin, Elizabeth Neel, Baker Overstreet, Stephen G. Rhodes, Amanda Ross-Ho, Sterling Ruby, Gedi Sibony, Amy Sillman, Agathe Snow, Kirsten Stoltmann, Dan Walsh, Jonas Wood and Aaron Young.
The exhibition brings to the limelight this new artistic trend somewhat like Charles SAATCHI did in the ‘90s with the Young British Artists, in which top names such as Damien Hirst, Mat Collishaw, Sam Taylor-Wood, Tracey Emin and many others were affirmed in the international art world
We will be able to see who will be the new talent of tomorrow; meanwhile we can take the opportunity of having a summer holiday in London – a city which never ceases to amaze you with all its novelties, fashions and its fascination. We have nothing else to do than choose from among its wonderful hotels, such as The Rubens at the Palace which is opposite Buckingham Palace, just a stone’s throw from the daily spectacle of the Changing of the Guard, or theMilestone Hotel, situated right in front of Kensington Palace, among the most refined 5-star hotels in the capital, or The Montague on the Gardens, a magnificent hotel situated inside an elegant building in the Bloomsbury area, opposite the British Museum and, on the other side, overlooking a secluded garden – an oasis of peace in the centre of the metropolis, or for those who prefer Knightsbridge, you will enjoy The Egerton House Hotel – a small refined hotel with the highest standards of luxury and comfort and in an ideal position for shopping because it is near Harrods and Harvey Nichols, also near the elegant boutiques of Sloane Street and Kings Road, and not far from the Chelsea Antiques Market, Portobello Road and Notting Hill.
