Sadie Coles HQ - Kingly Street
London W1B 5QN
Sadie Coles HQ is pleased to announce the opening on 11 September of its new gallery at 62 Kingly Street, London. Situated in the heart of the West End, this dramatic 6 000 - square - foot exhibition space extends across the first floor of a listed nineteenth - century building. Formerly a nightclub, it has been transformed into an expansive and minimal interior flooded by natural light from above and with double - height ceiling s throughout. The gallery will provide scope for an ambitious and diverse programme of exhibitions.
The inaugural show at 62 Kingly Street will be of new works by American painter Ryan Sullivan – the artist’s first exhibition with Sadie Coles HQ. Forthcoming exhibitions include those by Urs Fischer, Helen Marten, and Jim Lambie. In addition to the main space is a cabinet - style gallery. Here, smaller projects will be mounted in parallel to the main exhibitions, reviving the format of the acclaimed series of ‘SITUATION’ projects mounted by Sarah Lucas above the Sadie Coles HQ’s former premises on New Burlington Place. 62 Kingly Street is the largest site yet occupied by Sadie Coles HQ. Offering views onto Regent Street at one end and Soho at the other, it sits at the intersection of two historic and contrasting quarters of the West End.
Sadie Coles HQ has operated from a series of distinctive venues since its foundation in 1997 on Heddon Street – a short distance from the new site – as well as variety of off - site venues throughout London. The gallery will continue to operate from its existing two spaces in Mayfair, 69 South Audley Street and 9 Balfour Mews.
