Katya Kazakina asks the crucial question about Damien Hirst’s departure from the Gagosian Gallery: Will the Mugrabis continue to support the Hirst market as they have done with Warhol, Basquiat and others?
Mugrabi said his family’s commitment to the Hirst market won’t be affected by the artist’s departure from Gagosian, saying, “I will support his market until I am dead.” He said the family owns “several hundred” pieces by Hirst. […]
“I am not worried about Mr. Gagosian,” Mugrabi said. “He is still at the top, with or without Damien.”
