Damien Hirst Says, School’s Out, Forever

School’s Out Forever

Continuing Education

This afternoon I had my mind completely blown by Damien Hirst ‘s installation in the lobby of the Lever House in midtown: School: The Archeology of Lost Desires, Comprehending Infinity and the Search for Knowledge. Jesus god, this exhibit is just amazing. I can understand why some people – vegetarians and animal rights activists, specifically – might be offended by its contents, but to me it was so compellingly creepy and disturbingly beautiful, I didn’t want to leave. I absolutely loved it, and I’m certain that all fans and admirers of the Nine Inch Nails’ video for “Closer” will as well.

School is on exhibit until February 9, 2008. I suggest you not miss the chance to experience this phenomenal work of modern art, if at all possible. See more pictures after the jump!
