Have Hirst will travel

We don't usually come across press statements like: "TAG Farnborough Airport has become the first business aviation airport in the world to showcase the works of Damien Hirst and designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby." This show, held in the small airport outside London (until 1 December), consists of spin and spot paintings by the ubiquitous British artist. The show's organiser Tatiana Ojjeh, the director of Artliner: Art and Aviation, says: "It is not an exhibition in the traditional sense but a placement that Artliner organised, tendered to the lifestyle of the clientele of TAG Farnborough Airport." All works are for sale, with prices ranging from £55,000 to £500,000.
