James S. Copley Auditorium
Complementing the Museum’s installation of David Hockney’s The Valley (Mountains in Var, near La Garde Freinet)*, Hockney presents a fascinating dive into the life, loves, and career of one of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists. From his early beginnings in working-class West Yorkshire to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in the 1960s and 70s, Hockney has consistently defied the labels—“pop art,” “queer art,” “figurative art,”—imposed upon him and has created a remarkable body of work spanning painting, photographic collage, and even theater and set design. Hockney utilizes interviews, personal photographs, and home movies to offer a deeply personal look at the artist’s remarkable life. 2014, Not Rated, 112 min. Please note this film contains strong language and nudity.
