Today was the VIP opening of ‘Relics’, the Damien Hirst exhibition held at Alriwaq in Doha.
There was food. Drinks were served in syringes and spherical bowls.
The exhibition showed Hirst’s iconic pieces.
I was prepared to be unimpressed, but there was something compelling about the exhibition and many, if not all of the pieces, on show.
Her Excellency Sheikha Mayassa was there along with Damien Hirst, Naomi Campbell, me and a whole bunch of others.
Postscript… apparently Donatella Versace was also in attendance as was Jeff Koons. I didn’t see the former and wouldn’t have recognised the latter.
