Gagosian is pleased to present new work by Damien Hirst. Entitled The Elusive Truth, the exhibition comprises approximately thirty paintings that have been completed over the past three years.
This exhibition, Hirst’s first in New York since 2000, signals a new direction in his work.
Hirst’s 2004 exhibitions include his first survey exhibition, The Agony and the Ecstasy, at Museo Archelogico Nazionale, Naples, Italy; and In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida: Fairhurst, Hirst, and Lucas, at Tate Britain, London. Damien Hirst: From the Cradle to the Grave, Selected Drawings was also published in 2004. It presents an important selection of drawings and sketches spanning Hirst’s entire career.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a large-format catalogue that highlights twenty-four paintings featured in the current New York exhibition. Measuring eighteen by twelve inches, the book will include full-color reproductions on tipped-in plates, a raised plastic cover displaying the painting Two Pills (2004), an essay by JG Ballard, and die-cut windows that highlight details of the paintings. Additionally, Damien Hirst has written or selected texts to accompany each painting throughout the catalogue.
