Edward Kay, Untitled, 2004

Curators' choice of the best MA and BA art school graduates. This will be the first time new work will be seen other than by those visiting the individual degree shows, on during the Venice Biennale and the Basel Fair.
An unusual and fascinating opportunity for collectors of contemporary art to view the work of a new generation of artists.

Curated by Kay Saatchi and Catriona Warren

Chris Dobrowolski, Landscape Escape No.2 The Tank, 2002

A major exhibition of artists indicative of an important trend - the use of Old Master iconography in contemporary art. This interesting new development in art has arisen in the past two years and is emblematic of a return to painting and drawing, on the part of young artists. Art Fortnight
London will be the first to spotlight this trend. The selected work is a fascinating bridge between contemporary sensibility and recognisable Old Master iconography. To date there are some thirty artists under consideration.

Curated by Flora Fairbairn and Catriona Warren

Open: 23 June till 4 July, 11am - 6pm (late opening until 8pm on 29 June)

Venue: 148A St. John Street, EC1 (Near Clerkenwell Road junction)

Andrea Sarto, Madonna and Child with St. John, c.1513

Do pre 20th century pictures have a place in the contemporary collectors' world or should they be confined to museums? This most challenging exhibition of Old Master pictures chosen from participating galleries, will be devised by the three-dimensional designer and polymath Thomas
Heatherwick. The exhibition will seek, through re-contextualising pre 20th century pictures, to change our vision of the art of the past and will suggest that pre 20th century art most certainly does have a future as part of living 21st Century collecting.

Shock of the Old will be exhibited in the Autumn of 2005
