About David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away)

Using large-scale projection in a remarkable new space, David Hockney takes us on a personal journey through sixty years of his art.

In a cycle of six themed chapters, with a specially composed score by Nico Muhly and commentary by the artist himself, Hockney creates a show that invites us to look more closely, more truly and more joyously.

From LA to Yorkshire, and up to the present day in Normandy, the show is an unprecedented opportunity to spend time in the presence of one of the great popular geniuses of the art world still innovating, still creating beauty and awe.

Plus you can download their free teaching resource pack!
