Damien Hirst, an exhibition at Tate Modern

In the May 24 issue, <a href="http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2012/may/24/damien-hirst-brimming-sheer-cheek/">Julian Bell writes</a>, “One reason
to visit the Damien Hirst retrospective at London’s Tate Modern is to meet the drunken butterflies. They are in a two-room installation entitled In and Out
of Love. In its first room you see a few dead butterflies randomly stuck onto a group of big canvases that have been gloss-painted yellow, purple, pink,
and so on, like a jumble of xylophone keys. Then you pass through PVC curtains into a bright and humid gallery where dozens of live specimens, of tropical
origin, woozily waft through the air. Their dark silhouettes, passing you by, flash iridescent blues, vermilions, and lime-greens.”

The Tate Modern is open Sunday-Thursday from 10 AM to 6 PM, and Friday and Saturday from 10 AM to 10 PM. Tickets,
£14, are available at
