Sadie Coles HQ is a contemporary art gallery in central London which opened in April 1997. The gallery focuses on presenting the work of established and emerging international artists. The inaugural exhibition at 35 Heddon Street, by American painter John Currin, was followed by Sarah Lucas’s exhibition The Law in lofts on St John Street. This coupling established the international dimension of the gallery’s exhibition programme, as well as the off-site projects which have presented artists’ work in a variety of locations throughout London and abroad in tandem with the main programme of exhibitions. Since its foundation in 1997, Sadie Coles HQ has operated from a diverse range of spaces. The current space at 62 Kingly Street opened in the summer of 2013, and in November 2015 a new gallery opened at 1 Davies Street. An additional space in Mayfair is located at 9 Balfour Mews.
