CREAM – Damien Hirst and the crème de la crème of YBA in Helsinki

Carl-Dag Lige (3-4/2010)

Carl-Dag Lige visits Kiasma
In the spring of 2001, Anders Härm, Kiwa and Hanno Soans curated an exhibition yBa at the Tallinn Art Hall, where they exhibited new works by local Estonian artists. The name and logo for the exhibition however, were hi-jacked from the most sensational group of British artists from the 1990's – the Young British Artists. The exhibition CREAM at Kiasma is built on a fundamentally different ideological basis than what Härm, Kiwa and Soans organized. CREAM is an exhibition mostly in the art historical and pedagogical sense and the stars of recent decades are presented there as art classics. The works of Damien Hirst and his friends or colleagues are presented as established, canonized contemporary art.
