Damien Hirst Spotted -- Preview His 11-Gallery Strong Gagosian Exhibit

Alexis Swerdloff

In what is sure to be one of the biggest art events of the season, on January 11th, all 11 of Gagosian's galleries worldwide will feature a total of over 300 of Damien Hirst's famous "spot paintings" -- you know, the ones with the spots! More than two years in the making, and culled from over 150 lenders from 20 countries, "The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011" will include everything from the first spot Hirst ever spotted back in 1986 to his most recent which has a whopping 25,781 spots. The show includes works for sale, but Gagosian hasn't stated yet which ones, and for how much. Check out a preview of some of the paintings on display, and be sure to head to your local Gagosian on Jan. 11th!
