Damien Hirst: New Religion

About ‘New Religion’

New Religion is an exhibition of silkscreen prints and sculptural editions by one of the world’s most significant contemporary artists, presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Republic of Srpska in association with Paul Stolper Gallery and The British Council.

This exhibition will explore the complex relationship between mortality and faith, and the fascination with science and technology; themes central to Damien Hirst’s longstanding career as a thought-provoking and at times controversial artist.

First exhibited at Paul Stolper Gallery in 2005, New Religion has been the subject of shows in Oslo, Moscow, Venice, Sofia, Woking, Gdansk and at All Hallow's Church in London.
