30 November 2013-2 February 2014
Ashley Bickerton, Cerith Wyn Evans, Fred Tomaselli, Gabriel Orozco, Gary Hume, Haim Steinbach and Tracey Emin among other artists, are all exhibiting works at the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow. The exhibition is titled 'Freedom not Genius' and is a collection of works that have been acquired since the early 90’s by Damien Hirst, when he began trading work with his contemporaries.
The exhibition reflects the artist’s life-long commitment to the process of collecting, something he describes as being: 'like stuff washed up on a beach somewhere and that somewhere is you'. ‘Freedom not Genius’ also bears testament to Hirst’s absorption with those themes explored so iconically within his own work: the struggle involved in reconciling the concept of our mortality in life and a fascination with natural history.
The exhibition is curated by Elena Geuna.
