She talks candidly about the gallery, and working hand-in-hand with the infamous Charles Saatchi--kingmaker of the 90's London art scene and one of the major forces behind the YBA phenomenon. She also talks about the galleries more recent exhibitions, and the risks involved with large-scale international exhibitions involving emerging artists from countries with hostile regimes: in particular the plight of several Iranian artists who faced persecution at home for an exhibition at Saatchi.
