Damien Hirst "The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011" @ Gagosian Gallery Recap

One of the world’s most controversial artists, Damien Hirst recently launched a high-profile show

One of the world’s most controversial artists, Damien Hirst recently launched a high-profile show at Los Angeles’ Gagosian Gallery. Effectively pushing the boundaries of pricing for a living artist, Hirst’s Los Angeles premiere was just one of a globally coordinated showing at all 11 Gagosians worldwide including New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, Rome, Athens, Geneva and Hong Kong. The focus on Hirst’s spot paintings included upwards of 300 borrowed pieces from 150 collectors spanning 20 countries. To help cap off the event, The Complete Spot Paintings 1986–2011 was released which represents a fully illustrated catalog of all of Hirst’s spot paintings since 1986 with essays by “Museum of Modern Art curator Ann Temkin, cultural critic Michael Bracewell, and art historian Robert Pincus-Witten as well as a conversation between Damien Hirst, Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari.” The exhibition will remain open until February 10.
