Fodor's Expert Review Newport Street Gallery

South of the Thames Free
Putting the seal on Vauxhall's status as an up-and-coming neighborhood, business-savvy artist Damien Hirst opened this gallery in a cavernous space that was formerly a Victorian scenery-painting workshop. It currently houses a rotating selection from his large private collection of contemporary art that includes works by Francis Bacon, Banksy, Picasso, Jeff Koons, Richard Hamilton, and Tracey Emin, to name just a few, along with six-month-long solo shows for emerging artists. There's also a shop selling artists' books, limited-edition prints, and sculptures, while snacks and drinks are available from Pharmacy 2, which takes its name and some artwork from Hirst's fashionable (and now-closed) millennium-era Notting Hill watering hole.
