Posted 6/15/14

Much more interesting than the description of the 14 Rooms performance series, which will take place as part of Art Basel and is organized by star-curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist, is its call out for participants/performers to take part in it: “If you have an identical twin, use the opportunity to be part of Damien Hirst’s work. War veterans are sought after for part of Santiago Sierra’s performance, and anyone who speaks colloquial British-English and is similar in appear... [more]

Cars have been a fascination for artists since they sputtered onto the road. They are cultural objects, gleaming social markers, symbolic vessels of all that is modernity. Usually, there are one or two “art cars” in Miami, but in all the years I’ve made the rounds the most memorable was easily Pimp Juice, the fully customized Cadillac low-rider Jeffrey Deitch parked in front of Art Basel back in 2007. It was tricked out by the Chicago-based Puerto-Rican artist Dzine and it was... [more]

It could be written, for the sake of argument, that: in the beginning, there was the shark, and that the shark, in its bluish vitrine, was Good. This would not, as this Tate retrospective reminds us, be really, empirically truthful -- in the beginning, there were a few hamfisted shots at sculpture (a kitchen cabinet, pots and pans, some glossy cardboard boxes shoved into warehouse rafters) and these, it is generally agreed, were Not Good At All -- but there is a sense, nonetheless, from the work...

Damien Hirst at Gagosian - Paris January 12th, 2012 - March 10th, 2012
Posted 2/23/12

When I walked into Gagosian Gallery’s recently opened Paris space, one street back from the city’s most imposing shopping stretch, the Champs Élysées, I felt as though I had come home. In the light drenched space, made brighter by the gallery’s clean white walls, I was surrounded by paintings. And they are paintings that, for me, demonstrate contemporary art at its most brilliant and exciting. Here, on the pulse of the tourist hub, a stone’s throw from the Élyssée Palace is the Paris episode of... [more]

Posted 1/15/12

Damien Hirst is making a spectacle of himself again. This time he thinks he is the Willy Wonka of the art world, producing sickly sweet spots from his mysterious factory and shipping them out all over the world to feed the insatiable hunger of the super rich. And the golden ticket is a personalised spot painting print for the first person who sees all eleven of the Gagosian shows. It’s the kind of showmanship we have come to expect from Hirst, and – despite our incredulity – we would be sorely d... [more]

Posted 1/15/12

The idea of one spot painting is mystifying enough, but the idea of hundreds of them in eleven galleries across the world is frankly preposterous. But this is exactly what is happening:  Gagosian is presenting ‘The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011’ simultaneously in all his galleries as a kind of survey ahead of Hirst’s retrospective at Tate Modern later this year. The result is surprisingly moving; whether it moves one to wonder or fury, this cacophony of spots offers an opportunity to reconsid... [more]

Modern British Sculpture at the RA is a show that has been discussed heavily in the weekend press from the point of view of who is included and who is left out. Hepworth, we are told is hot, and Kapoor and Gormley are decidedly not. From the off we are left in no doubt about the overarching importance of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore in the story of British sculpture. When one first enters the exhibition one could be forgiven for thinking you were in a gallery at the  British Museu... [more]

Not the catchiest title perhaps, but Kupferstichkabinett is certainly a memorable show.  Referring to the collections of the German aristocracy which in turn lead to the more accessible print and drawing rooms in museums, this show draws on the past to prove that drawing is very much alive and kicking in contemporary art. Set up like a museum, with works densely hung on dark green walls, the show turns the White Cube into a museum of modern drawing, exploring its pivotal role in the pra... [more]

Haunch of Venison Berlin is delighted to announce Have You Ever Really Looked at the Sun? a two person exhibition by American artist Michael Joo (b.1966) and British artist Damien Hirst (b.1965). The exhibition opens on 1 May and continues through 14 August 2010. Have You Ever Really Looked at the Sun? is a unique collaboration between the two artists, who met in Cologne in 1991 and have remained close friends since that time.

      I am perfectly aware that Hirst’s show, No Love Lost, Blue Paintings, opened to the public a month ago. I purposely tried very hard not to engage in this exhibition of “new” works, surprisingly to no avail. It seems like every time Hirst has an exhibition in London the entire city goes into mania. He is the artist everyone loves to hate, hates to love, controversial enough to be a household name, and everyone (including their mothers) has an opinion about his practice. To put it simply, if o... [more]

      Kim Light moved into Maloney Fine Art's space, and in their first venture together they have mounted a group show, Blue Blue.  The group of artists is diverse, but the works are tied together by, you guessed it, the color blue.  In such a small space, this is actually a good approach to a group show.  It's hung salon style, works stacked on top of each other, creating a patchwork of sorts.  Sure, the pieces distract from each other and there isn't much space to really step back and look at, fo...

Truly the Lever House’s glass-walled lobby should be considered permanent home to Aby Rosen’s newly commissioned sensory masterpiece by artist Damien Hirst. To enter this architecture is to submerge one’s self within a tank of gripping conceptual associations that question one’s own identity as viewer or subject, devil or god, genius or dunce. Formaldehyde- filled horizontal tanks with headless lambs are arranged in classroom-like order facing a massive vertical tank serving as scholastic alter... [more]

Religion/Nature, Nature/Religion Two spheres of life at seemingly constant odds with one another. Or are they? Damien Hirst’s current show at Gagosian Gallery marries these two worlds by incorporating a unique and natural substance; butterfly wings, into the structure of something held so closely to the heart of religious art; the stained glass window. Hirst’s juxtaposition of the structured beauty of a stained glass window against the natural beauty of butterfly wings evokes a connecti... [more]
