Damien Hirst Spot Challenge: A scavenger hunt of the dotty kind

One of the funnest things you can do in Geneva: spot planking at the Gagosian Geneva gallery.
Thanks to Johan for being a great sport!
I popped up in Athens to face a phalanx of police riot shields. In LA, Stephen Spielberg's mother showed me her wall of fame to her son (it's on the way to the restroom). Then there was Occupy London ... and the $10/night Kung Fu hostel in Hong Kong with its Changi prison aesthetics and woman who refused to budge from my bunk bed …

My latest escapade was a complete departure from anything I've done before - the Damien Hirst Spot Challenge - a kind of global scavenger hunt where you had to dash around visiting all 11 galleries showing his Spot Paintings (NY-LA-London-Paris-Geneva-Rome-Athens-HK), and as a reward, receive a personally dedicated print. It was one of the maddest, funnest things I've ever done.

The full spot-by-spot journey is thrashed out on my art soapbox, http://chelseagallerista.com, and here are the relevant posts.
