Via FAD Magazine:

Damien Hirst is going Large for his first major exhibition since 2004. Ten years in the making it needs two venues to house it.

The exhibition, which will open to the public on April 9th 2017, marks the first time in the museums’ history that the two Venetian venues of the Pinault Collection will be dedicated to a single artist. It is also the first major solo exhibition dedicated to Damien Hirst in Italy since the 2004 retrospective at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples.

The exhibition is curated by Elena Geuna, curator of the monographic shows dedicated to Rudolf Stingel (2013) and Sigmar Polke (2016) presented at Palazzo Grassi.
