‘End of an Era’, Gagosian Gallery’s eighth solo Damien Hirst show, featured a new selection of works contributing to the ‘Natural History’, diamond cabinet, and ‘Fact’ painting series.
In an exhibition staged across White Cube’s premises in both Mason’s Yard and Hoxton Square, Hirst presented nineteen new works from the ‘Blue Paintings’ series.
In conjunction with Tate Connects, an initiative established in 2008 to develop partnerships between Tate and other UK galleries, the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, presented Hirst’s installation piece from the Tate collection, ‘Pharmacy’ (1992).
‘No Love Lost’ was the first UK exhibition of Hirst’s series of oil on canvas works collectively entitled the ‘Blue Paintings’.
This group exhibition proposed a rereading of the genre of Pop art as it played out through the 1980s and 1990s, taking a cue from the late work of its chief protagonist, Andy Warhol.
