Damien Hirst - Emergency Paintings, Danger Paintings, Hazard Pictures and Seizures

It’s about violence and danger and escapism and death and warning signs and being safe or getting caught.
—Damien Hirst

The exhibition features paintings, photographs, and sculptures that address the experiences and emotions of warning, danger, crime, rescue, and death.

The works take their inspiration from a variety of sources, including the bold designs on emergency vehicles, the skins of dangerous animals, and media images of police activity. The exhibition follows the inaugural installment in the takeover sequence, Fact Paintings and Fact Sculptures, and the second, Relics and Fly Paintings.
