The David Hockney’s retrospective at the de Young Museum in San Francisco
The de Young Museum in San Francisco presents an exhibition of David Hockney’s works until 20 January 2014. Featuring more than 300 works made from 2002 to the present, the exhibition highlights one of the most prolific decades of the artist’s career.
Over a career lasting more than 60 years, David Hockney has consistently displayed a passion, as Lawrence Wechsler writes in his essay for the exhibition catalog, “to look deeper and see more.” David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition displays the artist’s constantly searching curiosity, his desire to always move forward, and his unique genius for seeing. “The de Young is thrilled to bring this major exhibition of David Hockney’s work to a U.S. museum,” says Benefield. “It’s clear from the pace at which Hockney continues to produce such important work—and the fearless nature of his innovation—that he has conceded nothing to his 76 years.”
