Remember how Damien Hirst said he’d never make his meh dot paintings again, forcing their market value to skyrocket? Remember how he then went psyche! and started making dots again, showing them off at 11 simultaneous exhibits in all of the Gagosian galleries? Here’s his latest nifty hustle.
If you manage to visit all 11 shows before they close, Hirst will personally give you spots, ahem — “a signed spot print by Damien Hirst, dedicated personally to you.” You have a month to jet set from Hong Kong to Athens to Paris to New York. And… go! Don’t forget your handy stamp card.
No, Damien Hirst — Willy Wonka you are not. At this point, however, I give up. This is pretty ingenious.
