Damien HirstDamien Hirst, one of the most influential artists of his generation, will be bringing together renowned pieces of work in a spectacular exhibition at the Tate Modern this spring. Hirst organised his first exhibition when he was still a student and the now-famed Freeze exhibition launched the definition of cutting-edge contemporary art in the 1990s. Further displays by the award winning innovative artist include The Pharmacy, a life size pharmaceutical room, For the Love of God, a diamond encrusted skull and doubtlessly his most famous, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, which featured a 14 foot tiger shark suspended in formaldehyde inside a glass tank. With the compilation of these controversial pieces in one place - including seminal paintings made throughout his career - this first seminal survey of Hirst's work over the past two decades promises to be an exceptional show. If only he actually did all his work himself, eh?

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
