Blain|Southern is delighted to bring together the work of Damien Hirst and the late Felix Gonzalez-Torres in a major new two-person exhibition. The show will place Hirst’s Visual Candy paintings – created between 1993 and 1995 – in direct dialogue with Gonzalez-Torres’ work, made up of various coloured candies.
Gonzalez-Torres created his candy spills between 1990 and 1993. This is the first time that paintings from Hirst’s Visual Candy series have been presented together exclusively, and it will also be Gonzalez-Torres’ first two-person show in London.
For us, this is a new occasion to discuss Hirst's work and make an argument about its aesthetic and market worth. Also, it's the first two-person show IKWIL has ever been to, and the opportunity to (re-)encounter the work of iconic Felix-Gonzales Torres is enthusiastically welcome.
This visit is only open to full members, so please make sure you've paid your annual contribution before confirming participation.
