"SENSATION: Young British Artists From the Saatchi Collection"
1999-10-02 until 2000-01-09
Brooklyn Museum of Art
Brooklyn, NY, USA United States of America

A defining exhibition of the last decade-that includes approximately ninety paintings, sculpture, photographs, and installations by forty-two artists, will be presented for the first time in the United States at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. The exhibition, which attracted a record number of visitors and created considerable controversy in its inaugural presentation at the Royal Academy in London, will be on view at the Brooklyn Museum of Art from October 2, 1999 through January 9, 2000. It is the only presentation planned in this country at this time.

Among the forty two artists represented is Damien Hirst, perhaps Britains best-known artist of this generation, who is now recognized throughout the world for his work comprising sections of animals, such as sharks, lambs, and cows, preserved and presented in sealed, formaldehyde-filled, glass containers. Also included will be work by the brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman, who explore a complex and bizarre world of sexual identity, transmutation, and commercialism with their child-like multi-bodied and multi-body-part figures. Jenny Saville, whose large, almost abstract paintings of overwhelmingly fleshy female forms recall for the viewer both Rubens and Lucien Freud, challenge societys notion of the ideal female form. Among the other artists whose work appears in SENSATION are Mona Hatoum, Sarah Lucas, Ron Mueck, Chris Ofili, Fiona Rae, and Rachel Whiteread.
