Damien Hirst Retrospective at Tate Modern, London

April 2, 2012

Damien Hirst is one oft he most controversial contemporary artists. Some love him, some hate him, but his commercial success is indisputable. Now the Tate Modern in London presents the first major retrospective of Damien Hirst’s work in the UK.

The exhibition spans two decades. On display are early works that are on display at Tate Modern for the first time since the 1980s as well as later works such as the famous shark in formaldehyde and the diamond skull. Among the highlights is the work In and Out of Love (1991), a room full of live butterflies.

Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol, UK. He lives and works in London and Devon. The show at Tate Modern runs until September 9, 2012.

PS: Yes, the (in)famous Skull is on display as well, but the press wasn’t allowed to take pictures. So if you can’t make it to London, we recommend heading to the next Swarovski shop.
