AN INNOVATIVE, MYSTERIOUS HIRST
This will be the first major solo show dedicated to British artist Damien Hirst in Italy since the 2004 retrospective at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples. Damien Hirst’s first new body of works in several years will be unveiled in Venice on 9 April. The show, billed as “10 years in the making,” is also the first time the Pinault Collection’s two locations — the Palazzo Grassi and the Punta della Dogana — will be dedicated to a single artist. At the artist’s express wish, the contents of this exhibition will remain a closely guarded secret until its opening. 9 April - 3 December Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable Palazzo Grassi, Campo San Samuele 3231 / Punta della Dogana, Dorsoduro 2. www.palazzograssi.it
