Forgot to post this ages ago but caught an interview with Damien Hirst on the box last night.
In the darkest hour there may be light is the first public exhibition of the murderme collection and Hirst has worked closely with the Serpentine on the selection and presentation of the sculptures, paintings, photography and installations in and around the Gallery. It offers a fascinating insight into Hirst’s collecting acumen and personal interests, as he says “I always think collections are like a map of a man’s life”.
The exhibition features over 60 works by 24 artists, representing a cross-section of the most interesting contemporary art today. The artists included are Francis Bacon, Banksy, Don Brown, Angela Bulloch, John Currin, Tracey Emin, Angus Fairhurst, Steven Gregory, Marcus Harvey, Rachel Howard, John Isaacs, Michael Joo, Jeff Koons, Jim Lambie, Sean Landers, Tim Lewis, Sarah Lucas, Nicholas Lumb, Tom Ormond, Laurence Owen, Richard Prince, Haim Steinbach, Gavin Turk, Andy Warhol.
The Damien Hirst at Serpentine Gallery exhibition runs until the 28th January 2007.
Nearest tubes: Knightsbridge and South Kensington. Admission is free.
