Damien Hirst at the Tate Modern

4 April  –  9 September 2012
Tate modern exhibition!

This is a much anticipated exhibition for me as I have been fascinated with Hirst's work since my art teacher back in GCSE's showed me his Mother and Child Divided, a four-part sculpture of a bisected cow and calf suspended in formaldehyde. His work is undoubtedly one of most recognised for a living artist, and certainly reaping the benefits of his fame and fortune.
I had actually come across a documentary "The great contemporary art bubble" that explains why Artists such as Hirst have been such a success.

The exhibition will include such works as the ever famous "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living  1991"(below) amongst an array of other former art pieces.
