The Beaufort hotel is in a prime location for lots of things to do in and around Knightsbridge. From shopping at Harrods to visiting the science museum, you won’t be bored staying at the quiet boutique hotel.
The Saatchi Gallery is one of the best attractions nearby, especially with its newly launched exhibition space.
The gallery recently launched the space, called SALON, on February 24th. Its purpose is to exhibit the work of leading artists from around the world who haven’t had much exposure in the UK.
The first exhibition is showing paintings by Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa in partnership with Lévy Gorvy. The paintings from the 1950s and ’60s include works from the artist’s first solo exhibition.
They are presented alongside another artist from the Gutai group of post-war Japan, Kazuo Shiraga. This first exhibition will run until May 14th.
The Beaufort is the ideal base if you want to explore the Saatchi Gallery. Fans of contemporary art may wish to allow at least a couple of days to return to the gallery more than once and enjoy the exhibitions on offer.
The gallery offers over 70,000 square metres of exhibition space, so there is plenty to see. As well as viewing the art, visitors could even go home with a piece if they happen to fall in love with any of the art on sale.
The hotel is just a few minutes from the gallery in a location that is both central and tucked out of the way.
As well as the new exhibition space, the gallery has plenty of other things going on. Upcoming exhibitions include From Selfie to Self-expression, run in partnership with Chinese technology brand Huawei.
The world’s first exhibition exploring the history of the selfie (or self portrait), it aims to celebrate instead of deride a form of expression that people often view as shallow and self-obsessed. There’s even a chance to win a smartphone and perhaps have your work exhibited with the #SaatchiSelfie competition.
