This stunning exhibition will feature new paintings by Damien Hirst, never before seen in public, displayed in the State Rooms at Houghton Hall, with some of his most celebrated sculptures installed throughout the 18th-century house and gardens.
The series of paintings – entitled Colour Space – are a development of the iconic Spot Paintings which are among the artist’s most recognised works.
The six sculptures in the park will include Virgin Mother which was shown in the courtyard of the Royal Academy in 2006, and Charity which was installed on Hoxton Square in 2003 and outside the Royal West of England Academy of Art in Bristol in 2011.
Inside the house will be Saint Bartholomew, Exquisite Pain in the Entrance Hall plus two smaller kinetic sculptures from the artist’s ‘levitation’ series in the Stone Hall.
Dates & TimesOpen on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays. 11am – 5pm (last entry at 4pm)
