Damien Hirst at Gagosian Gallery
The 12th January saw the Hong Kong opening of an exciting new exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Central. “Damien Hirst: Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011” is a first for the renowned global chain of galleries in that all 11 locations are running it simultaneously.
Hosted by Nick Simunovic, Managing Director of Gagosian Gallery in Asia, the opening and private dinner at Otto e Mezzo Bombana was attended by many noted collectors and artists, including Yu Mingfang, Hsueh and Stella Sung, Mina and Steve Martinez, Max and Monique Burger, and the legendary Zeng Fanzhi.
Hirst, the former “enfant terrible” of the BritArt movement and a key figure in the Young British Artists (YBAs) group in the 1990s, has become internationally successful, if no less controversial. His spot paintings have become as immediately recognizable as his spin paintings, animals in formaldehyde and his Pharmacy pieces.
Featuring loans from public institutions and private collections, as well as the artist, the show will run through to the 18th February at Gagosian, 7th floor, Pedder Building, Pedder Street, Central.–CM
