Pharmacy

24 October 2009 - 7 March 2010

In conjunction with Tate Connects, an initiative established in 2008 to develop partnerships between Tate and other UK galleries, BALTIC presents Damien Hirst’s major 1992 work Pharmacy.

Exhibition supported by Newcastle University’s Medical School – celebrating 175 years

Additional Information

Hirst’s wide-ranging practice challenges the boundaries between art, science and popular culture. His work poses fundamental questions and explores the basic foundations of human experience to expose the fragility of our existence. Hirst’s Pharmacy could be seen as an exploration of the wide range of philosophies, theories and belief systems available to influence and structure our lives.For Hirst, medicine, like art, provides a belief system which is both seductive and deceptive.
