Published in 2004 to accompany a major retrospective in Naples in 2004, this book is a thorough and intriguing catalogue of Damien Hirst's work to date. As the figurehead of a new wave of British artists that emerged in the 1990's , Hirst has pioneered a fresh and challenging attitude and approach to the production and exhibition of contemporary art, a legitimate heir to Marcel Duchamp' and a bit pop, a bit minimalist, and a bit conceptual'. Through 16 chapters, this catalogue intelligently plots Hirst's development with social and cultural contextual analysis, highlighting significant factors that informed and influenced the growth of his ideas and work from the early college/constructions made during the early 1980's; the innovative curatorial project freeze in 1988; through to landmark works such as 'A Thousand Years (1990)', and his installation 'Romance in the Age of uncertainty (2003)'
