The AFA is pleased to invite you to an exclusive tour of David Hockney at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tour will be led by Ian Alteveer, Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art.
From his early engagement with modernist abstraction and mid-career experiments with illusion and realism, to his most recent, jewel-toned landscapes, David Hockney has consistently explored the nature of perception and representation with both intellectual rigor and sheer delight in the act of looking.
This major retrospective—the exhibition’s only North American venue—honors the artist in his 80th year by presenting his most iconic works and key moments of his career from 1960 to the present. It offers a grand overview of the artist’s achievements across all media, including painting, drawing, photography, and video.
The exhibition is made possible in part by The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, The Jay Pritzker Foundation, the Jane and Robert Carroll Fund, and the Aaron I. Fleischman and Lin Lougheed Fund.
It is supported by an Indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.
It is organized collaboratively by Tate Britain, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
