The Tate Bri­tain’s big birth­day bash for David Hock­ney (1937–) is over, but the Getty has a show that will ac­tu­ally be open when the artist cel­e­brates his 80th on July 9. The mu­seum is fo­cus­ing on his wide-rang­ing self por­traits, as well as Hock­ney’s well-known photo col­lages— your chance to fi­nally see Pear­blos­som Hwy., 11–18th April 1986, #2, part of the Getty col­lec­tion, in per­son—and com­pos­ite Po­laroids.

“The Po­laroid Project: At the In­ter­sec­tion of Art and Tech­nol­ogy” at the Amon Carter Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Art, June 3–Septem­ber 3, 2017

Kick­ing off an in­ter­na­tion­ally trav­el­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, Amon Carter Mu­seum will host “The Po­laroid Project,” a sur­vey of the revo­lu­tion­ary tech­nol­ogy that changed not only the medium, but also the cul­tural un­der­stand­ing of pic­tures and pic­ture-tak­ing. The ubiq­uity of Po­laroid—the com­pany, and the move­ment it be­gan in 1943, is doc­u­mented in this ex­hi­bi­tion as an en­dur­ing land­mark of science and art.
