The Telegraph reports Damien Hirst’s comments on the news that he will be opening a gallery of his personal art collection in 2014:
Hirst said the development, in Newport Street, Vauxhall, would contain six galleries and a cafe, adding: “It’s . . . a place to show my collection of contemporary art. It feels bad having it all in crates. It’s basically Francis Bacon and beyond.”
The gallery will house around 2,000 pieces including works by Hirst, Banksy and US artist Jeff Koons.
