Upcoming Event: David Hockney – A Bigger Picture @ The Guggenheim Bilbao (BIO)

By Doug Bleggi

David Hockney is considered one of the most important living British painters. Organized by The Royal Academy of Arts in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, David Hockney: A Bigger Picture is the first major exhibition held in Spain to celebrate the artist’s career. Nearly 190 works will be on display, spanning Hockney’s wide array of stylistic choices including traditional methods such as oil paintings and charcoals, along with more modern techniques like iPad drawings and digital videos. The exhibition will showcase Hockney’s unique way of representing nature and youth through various methods spanning over five decades of output. While his work is often quite varied, A Bigger Picture will be pulling Hockney’s career into full focus.
