Opens Friday, 15th July until Sunday, 30th October 2011
" A major new exhibition of work by Damien Hirst will be coming to Leeds Art Gallery 15th July. The exhibition will be coming to the art gallery on The Headrow from July to September 2011 as part of the national ARTIST ROOMS programme which will see collections of modern and contemporary art held by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland going on display at venues around the country.
Hirst has strong links with Leeds, as he grew up in the city and also attended Leeds College of Art and Design before shooting to national and international prominence in the mid-1990s with his groundbreaking and controversial use of animals preserved in formaldehyde in many of his works. "
This is one of the destinations for me & Speck this weekend, she will never get the opportunity to be so close to Damien Hirsts work in New Zealand. It is also a chance to spend another day walking around Leeds with my daughter !
