About the exhibition
The Bucerius Kunst Forum presents David Hockey, one of Great Britain’s most important contemporary artists. The retrospective is dedicated to Hockney’s wide-ranging career as a painter, draughtsman and graphic artist. His constant search for new forms of expression and his exploration of the possibilities for representing perspective, perception and reality are central aspects of the show. In addition, Hockney’s sensitive portraits and intimate nudes demonstrate his keen eye for interpersonal relationships and his interest in the male body.
Some of David Hockney’s major works are shown together for the first time in Germany, including the well-known paintings The First Marriage, Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy and My Parents.
The exhibition is being organised in cooperation with Tate.
