Catalogue of the exhibition in Turin,
Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli
10 November 2012- 10 March 2013
Freedom not Genius, curated by Elena Geuna, is a rare insight into the interests and tastes of one of the world’s best-known living artists.
DIn the late 1980s Hirst began exchanging his own works with those of his artist friends who were also part of the now infamous Young British Artists group, acquiring pieces that would lay the foundation for one of the most interesting contemporary art collections in the world.
The show in Turin will feature over 50 artists. Among them from Hirst’s collection are Frank Auerbach, Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti, Mario Merz, Bruce Nauman, Richard Prince, and Andy Warhol in dialogue with carefully chosen works by artists of the next generation, including: Banksy, John Currin, Tracey Emin, Angus Fairhurst, Sarah Lucas, and Rachel Whiteread.
Hirst’s continued fascination with death is evident throughout and, using Picasso’s Nature morte au crane et au pot as a starting point, part of the exhibition will present a contemporary wunderkammer – a series of memento mori reflecting a theme that recurs throughout the Murderme collection.
