Damien Hirst continues to make a huge impression on a huge scale in a controversial manner, and this latest installation at Los Angeles’ Gagosian Gallery makes for more notable news. Hirst was just one of a globally coordinated showing at all 11 Gagosians worldwide including New York, London, Paris, Los Angeles, Rome, Athens, Geneva, and Hong Kong. This comprehensive collection of works that is focused on his spot paintings consists of upwards of 300 borrowed pieces from 150 collectors from some 20 countries. In addition to what is on show at the gallery, The Complete Spot Paintings 1986–2011 is also subject of an impressive catalog with works dating back to 1986 and featuring essays by “Museum of Modern Art curator Ann Temkin, cultural critic Michael Bracewell, and art historian Robert Pincus-Witten as well as a conversation between Damien Hirst, Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari.”
