Damien Hirst: Thoughts, Work, Life
At LdM a special screening on one of England’s most famous and controversial artists, in collaboration with Lo Schermo dell’Arte
From dead sharks to diamond skulls, from dissected animals to a 20 meter tall bronze statue of an anatomical cross-sectional pregnant nude. That is Damien Hirst.
In collaboration with ‘Lo Schermo dell’Arte’, the International Independent Film Festival in Florence, LdM presents this special screening on the famous British artist. A presentation and Open Forum will be conducted by LdM Prof. Rossana Pinero and Silvia Lucchesi, Director of the “Schermo dell’Arte”, a festival that presents inspiring films, videos, installations and performances made by artists and filmmakers who seek to challenge the conventions of the moving image.
Damien Hirst was born in Bristol in 1965 and studied in London for a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths college from 1986 to 1989. He was one of the main artists within the Young British Artists group, that dominated British art during the 1990s.
