An Exhibition of work by
Damien Hirst & Tess Farmer
23 October – 22 November 2012
Following on from the success of Lotte Inch Gallery’s maiden exhibition, we are pleased to hear of the announcement that one of the biggest names in modern art is gracing York’s cultural scene.
Renowned artist Damien Hirst and London-based installation artist Tessa Farmer will this month bring their latest exhibition into the walls of our beautiful city. ‘Entomology’ will offer for sale an exhibition of work from these unique artists, both represented within the Saatchi collection and will consider themes of nature, taxonomies and microscopic underworlds. Further work will be provided for sale from John Dilnot an artist working out of Brighton who creates artists’ books and box works.
Since 1987, over 80 solo Damien Hirst exhibitions have taken place worldwide and his work has been included in over 250 group shows. Hirst’s first major retrospective ‘The Agony and the Ecstasy’ was held in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples in 2004. His contribution to British art over the last two and a half decades is recognised this year in a major retrospective of his work staged at Tate Modern.
Lotte Inch Gallery is a new temporary art gallery project within the centre of York: a city which is creatively rich, The Gallery promises to be York’s most individual art gallery space dedicated to supporting the work of local and national, distinguished and emerging artists. With a commitment to offering original, inspirational and affordable art to everyone.
Entomology will open on Wednesday 24rd October until Thursday 22nd November.
