Exhibitions

David Hockney: Current

Until 13 Mar 2017

The NGV presents a major solo exhibition of one of the most influential living artists, David Hockney: Current. The exhibition, curated by the NGV in collaboration with David Hockney and his studio, features more than 700 works from the past decade of the artist’s career – some new and many never-before-seen in Australia – including paintings, digital drawings, photography and video works.

Exhibition highlights include more than 600 extraordinary and sometimes animated iPad digital drawings of still life compositions, self-portraits and large-scale landscapes including scenes of Yosemite National Park. Another highlight is The Four Seasons, Woldgate Woods, a breath-taking and immersive video work showcasing the changing landscape of Hockney’s native Yorkshire, each season comprised of nine high-definition screens. A dedicated 35-metre long gallery lined with more than 80 recently painted acrylic portrait paintings of the artist’s family, friends and notable subjects including artists John Baldessari and Barry Humphries is also a major highlight.

Organised by the National Gallery of Victoria in collaboration with Gregory Evans of David Hockney Inc.
