The Yale Center for British Art presents its first new special exhibition since reopening to the public. Thirty years ago, Damien Hirst’s seminal installation In and Out of Love was shown for the first time. It subsequently launched his career as one of the most prominent artists his generation and was coexistent with London’s rise as a global hub for contemporary art. To mark this milestone, In and Out of Love (Butterfly Paintings and Ashtrays) will be shown in its entirety for the first time in many years, alongside works of historic, modern, and more contemporary art from the Center’s collections. Titled Love, Life, Death, and Desire: An Installation of the Center’s Collections, this display will be on view through February 28, 2021.
