Organised by Gavin Turk and The House of Fairy Tales, ‘Turkish Tulips’ interweaves artwork by contemporary artists with The Bowes Museum’s permanent collection. Exploring the flower’s historic relationship with both European visual arts and Eastern influences, ‘Turkish Tulips’ was first exhibited in Amsterdam and will continue touring across Europe and the Middle East.

Hirst's ‘Tulip Varieties’ presents thirty alphabetically-ordered images of tulip heads. The print is featured alongside work by Cornelia Parker, Gavin Turk and Sir Peter Blake.
