Artist Rooms: Damien Hirst

An new Hirst exhibition will be opening in Leeds Art Gallery today as part of the national Artist Rooms programme. Artist Rooms is a new public collection of international contemporary art, bought together by a collaboration between The Art Fund, Tate, and National Galleries of Scotland. The collection shows individual artists' work in more depth and is shown all across the UK giving as many people as possible the chance to experience them.

Hirst's exhibition is expected to pull in crowds as he has strong links with Leeds having grown up in the city and he also attended Leeds College of Art and Design before becoming internationally renowned in the 90s. The exhibition will be the first dedicated display of Hirst's work ever seen in Leeds and will show work from his early days as a student.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
