Damien Hirst’s forthcoming art complex, The Newport Street Gallery, is slated to open in south London this summer. Located in the up-and-coming Vauxhall district, the gallery will boast over two-thousand modern and contemporary artworks drawn from Hirst’s personal collection. In addition to works by such luminaries as Jeff Koons, Pablo Picasso, and Francis Bacon, the gallery will also display taxidermy, anatomical models, and a selection of historical objects. According to The Art Newspaper, the complex will have a changing program of exhibitions rather than a fixed installation.

Hirst enlisted the Zurich and London-based firm Caruso St John Architects to construct the gallery. The firm, whose past clients include Tate Britain, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Arts Council of England, and the Gagosian Gallery, is celebrated for its contemporary projects in the public realm.
