About

Gagosian is pleased to present a summer group exhibition entitled Same Time This Year. The exhibition includes work by Douglas Gordon, Damien Hirst, Vera Lutter, and Andy Warhol.

Exhibited for the first time is Damien Hirst’s Armageddon, which Village Voice critic Jerry Saltz has described as “the most shocking thing . . . [a] huge, black-and-bluish monochrome made entirely of dead flies. This painting is a perfect metaphor for the fears of the present moment and a reminder that when Hirst is mythologizing himself he’s capable of remarkable things.”

Also in the exhibition are haunting industrial landscapes by Vera Lutter and two video works, a text piece, and a selection from the Blind Stars series by Douglas Gordon.
