Damien Hirst to Open a Jeff Koons Show at His London Museum

1 year ago

Damien Hirst is putting on a solo exhibition of paintings and sculptures by his American contemporary Jeff Koons.

From Wednesday to Oct. 16, 36 works by Mr. Koons — all but two of them from Mr. Hirst’s collection — will go on display at the Newport Street Gallery, Mr. Hirst’s private museum in Vauxhall, South London. The exhibition space, which consists of new and renovated brick buildings, opened in October at a cost of 25 million pounds, or about $36 million.

Mr. Hirst, who also owns works by Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Richard Prince, among others, dedicated the gallery’s inaugural exhibition to John Hoyland, a British abstract painter who died in 2011.
