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.
This exhibition is organised collaboratively by Tate Britain, the Centre Pompidou, Paris and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
This exhibition will relocate to the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris:
June 21-October 23, 2017.

"My drawings are primarily meant for guys who may have experienced
misunderstanding and oppression and feel that they have somehow failed
in their lives. I want to encourage them. I want to encourage this
minority group, to tell them not to give up, to think positively about
their act and whole being." (1990) —
Tom of Finland
