It's the third major retrospective at Damien Hirst's Newport Street Gallery, and this time it's the turn of Gavin Turk — incidentally the third white male — to get his moment in the sun. Turk, a fellow YBA, has become big and famous for pioneering plenty of the forms of contemporary British sculpture, including the painted bronze sculpture, the waxwork, the recycled art-historical icon and the use of rubbish in art. This exhibit is a showcase of works throughout his career — art that's often high concept and concerned with issues of authorship, authenticity and identity. Damien Hirst says it's work "about language and the spaces between things – about identity and being somebody and nobody... he plays with our preconceptions of what’s there and not there, of what art is and how it functions." Expect to see bin bags, tyres, waxworks and figures from pop culture at this one.
