David Hockney Exhibition

Overview

February 9 – May 29, 2017
London, UK

 

 

 

Details

 

One of the most popular and influential British artists of the twentieth century returns to Tate Britain for his most comprehensive exhibition yet. 

 

This exhibition gathers together an extensive selection of David Hockney’s most famous works celebrating his achievements in painting, drawing, print, photography and video across six decades.

 

As he approaches his 80th birthday, Hockney continues to change his style and ways of working, embracing new technologies as he goes. From his portraits and images of Los Angeles swimming pools, through to his drawings and photography, Yorkshire landscapes and most recent paintings – some of which have never been seen before in public  –  this exhibition shows how the roots of each new direction lay in the work that came before. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to see these unforgettable works together.

 

 

Extra Activities

 

  • Every Saturday until May 27 enjoy three courses from a special Hockney inspired menu with access to the exhibition.

 

  • Create your own digital masterpiece inspired by Hockney’s iPad drawings.

 

Beyond his iconic oil paintings and photographic collages, in more recent years, David Hockney has also become known as the world’s foremost iPad painter. Using the iPad drawings from his upcoming retrospective as a jumping off point, this five-week course will explore the possibilities of digital painting techniques through the use of online applications such as Procreate. Taking inspiration from the David Hockney exhibition, participants are given the tools to create their own digital masterpieces for the Tate site.

This course is led by Roz Hall, a UK based digital artist, specialising in portraiture created on consumer tablet and mobile devices. As an advocate for the Mobile Digital Art movement, his work has been exhibited internationally as well as being featured in publications such as the Financial Times and the Independent. In 2014 he was selected by Apple to produce a series of iPad portraits which were exhibited in every Apple store across the world, as part of their Start Something New campaign.
