Damien Hirst at Houghton Hall

COLOUR SPACE PAINTINGS AND OUTDOOR SCULPTURES: 25th March – 15th July 2018

The curator of the exhibition was Mario Codognato.

Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton, said: ”We are delighted to have this opportunity to show Damien Hirst’s new paintings in the State Rooms at Houghton, together with some of his best-known sculptures in the grounds. It is perhaps the first time that Hirst has shown a significant body of work in a formal country house setting. William Kent’s gilded interiors will be transformed for the duration of the show.”
