“I prefer living in colour,” British artist David Hockney once said. And plenty of the artist’s signature saturated hues are on view for the next few months, with a blockbuster retrospective of Hockney’s work at the Tate Britain. The show brings together paintings, drawings, prints, photography, and video from the prolific pop artist’s decades-long career and showcases his chameleonic ability to change his style from abstraction to photorealism to Cubism over the years. From his famous paintings of L.A. swimming pools, to his Yorkshire landscapes and photographic collages, the nearly 80-year-old Hockney’s works are imbued with a sense of parody and self-reflection that questions the very act of image making. Organized in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou and the Metropolitan Museum, the show will tour internationally to Paris and New York following its presentation in London.
