Tate Bri­tain, Lon­don Show­ing un­til: 29 May 2017

The ex­hi­bi­tion, David Hock­ney, has opened to great ac­claim and is def­i­nitely one not to miss. The Tate has gath­ered to­gether an ex­ten­sive se­lec­tion of Hock­ney’s most fa­mous works to cel­e­brate 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.

Hock­ney has been de­scribed as one of our great­est liv­ing artists and this is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to see all his un­for­get­table works to­gether.
