"I prefer living in color" - David Hockney

Widely inspired by the XXth century Pop-Art movement, David Hockney still remains an unclassifiable artist. Giving life to multicoloured landscapes and characters, he maintains confusion between painting and photography, between subjectivity and reality, so as to catch his audience in his brightly coloured universe.

Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou from June, 19th 2017 to October, 23rd 2017


Celebrating the artist's 80th birthday with a delightful catalogue !

The reader will enjoy discovering (again) this colourful retrospective, which presents David Hocnkey's whole work.
Always led by a strong desire to broadcast his art, the painter perceive artistic creation mostly as a « sharing deed ».

The affection David Hockney shows for modern techniques punctuated the evolution of his work and his artistic reflection. He tries every innovation out, using in turns photography, fax, computers, printers (and more recently, the iPad), so as to create, broadcast and renew his art with originality.

Presenting more than 300 documents (paintings, photos, illustrations, screenshots of video installations, drawings,...), including the most famous artist's paintings (swimming -pools, double portriats, monumental landscapes...), this publication brings together again the enormity of David Hockney's artistic journey.

With the contribution of David Hockney himself
