Visitors at London's Tate Modern are likely to be struck by the variety of work in a new show devoted to the career of Brit Art bad-boy Damien Hirst — and by its similarity. The 14 rooms are full of splashes of vibrant color, and forceful reminders of death. The exhibition features over 70 of Hirst's works spanning three decades and will run from Apr. 4 - Sept. 9.
