Damien Hirst Picks Up The Brush For New Works
The paintings will be exhibited at The Wallace Collection, a national museum in an historic London town house. Hirsts's new works will be surrounded by Old Master paintings in small rooms with silk-covered walls and gilded cornices. Very few living artists have shown their work at The Wallace Collection. Hirst says he chose to exhibit his works there because his new works "feel like they belong here with other works and objects from other times." The exhibition will open in October.
