The Art of Chess
This is fantastic. The Art of Chess features chess boards and figures done by some of today’s most prominent artists such as Damien Hirst, Paul McCarthy, Rachel Whiteread, Maurizio Cattelan, and many more. The Art of Chess is currently on display at Dublin’s Sebastian Guinness Gallery through October 9th. I really enjoy Hirst’s interpretation of the chess set as his features items found at a doctor’s office as the chess pieces and I am also particularly fond of Paul McCarthy’s “Kitchen Set” for its overall presentation.
