Until 3rd April 2016
Until 3rd April 2016, Damien Hirst invites you to come and discover the work of the British painter John Hoyland in Hirst’s brand new Newport Street Gallery.
Damien Hirst demonstrated vision on a large scale in acquiring this cultural space: a 3500 m2 gallery in the heart of London, which opens its doors on six exhibition areas. Three years’ work has turned these historic buildings into a museum of great scope. Housed in old Victorian redbrick workshops, the museum gallery created by artist and collector Damien Hirst opened its doors on 8th October this year. For the first event, Damien Hirst is showing some iconic works by the artist John Hoyland, who died in 2011. Entitled Power Stations, the exhibition pays tribute to the abstract art of British artist John Hoyland. It presents to the public the works bought by Damien Hirst covering the life and career of John Hoyland between 1964 and 1982.
As an out-and-out fan of John Hoyland’s work, Damien Hirst had been promising this first ever exhibition devoted to the abstract British artist for a long time. So now the job is done: that enfant terrible of contemporary art, Damien Hirst, is unveiling for his very first visitors, John Hoyland’s major works, especially those which personally inspired him. Elsewhere in the Newport Street Gallery, the visitor can also view a selection from over 3000 pieces in Damien Hirst’s impressive art collection, including works by Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon, Jeff Koons and Pablo Picasso…
A stone’s throw from the Tate Modern in London, this revolutionary artistic exhibition paying tribute to the abstract painter John Hoyland is well worth a visit at the Newport Street Gallery until 3rd April 2016.
