Damien Hirst: End Of A Century




Newport Street Gallery presents a solo exhibition of early works by Damien Hirst. Titled ‘End of a Century’, the exhibition features over fifty artworks spanning Hirst’s formative years as a student in the 1980s to becoming one of Britain’s leading contemporary artists during the 1990s.

Rarely exhibited together, the works in ‘End of a Century’ will chart the emergence of Hirst’s most famous themes. Throughout his career, Hirst has reflected on the complex relationships between beauty, religion, science, life and death. He has said: “Art’s about life and it can’t really be about anything else. There isn’t anything else.”

Featuring installations, sculpture and paintings, some of which have not been seen before, ‘End of a Century’ will survey some of Hirst’s most iconic series, including Natural History, Spot Paintings, Spin Paintings and Medicine Cabinets.
