One of the most influential artists of his generation, Damien Hirst unveils Relics, the largest collection of his works, crafted over more than a quarter of a century. Exploring the complex relationship between art, love, life, and death, Hirst was a leader in revitalising the British art scene as he emerged from the Young British Artist (YBA) movement that originated in London in the late 1980s. First garnering public recognition in 1988 when he conceived and curated the seminal Freeze exhibition, Hirst – here in his first solo show in the Middle East – will bring both iconic and previously unseen works to the exhibition, making it a must not only for fans of Hirst, but for all fans of contemporary art.

The holy pilgrimage of Hajj is illuminated through this exhibition, the first of its kind to be held in a Muslim country.
