Art with Olga - Damien Hirst
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 | 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Damien Hirst is one of the most controversial British contemporary artists, known for his attention-grabbing works that end up selling for millions. His most ambitious project, a fake shipwreck titled “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable” which reportedly cost $65 million to produce, took place in Venice in 2017. Most of the pieces were once again shown at the Gallery Borghese in Rome in 2021. The famous historical setting proved to be a perfect backdrop for Hirst’s over-the-top fake antiquities. Join our Roman envoy Olga on a fascinating visit where the classical and contemporary mix in a mind twisting juxtaposition, decide for yourself – is this art, or skillful self-promotion?
