A Bigger Splash; a dive into the world of David Hockney at the Centre Pompidou

A Bigger Splash; a dive into the world of David Hockney at the Centre Pompidou

The Centre Pompidou, in collaboration with London’s Tate Britain and the Metropolitan Museum of New York, presents the most comprehensive retrospective exhibition yet devoted to the work of David Hockney. The Yorkshire-born artist moved to the West Coast of the United States in 1964, having become drawn to the hedonistic and sun-drenched California lifestyle. Fascinated by the imagery of swimming pools, he found fame in 1967 with his painting A Bigger Splash. The exhibition, which celebrates the artist's 80th birthday, examines Hockney's entire artistic career by way of more than 160 paintings, including his most iconic images of swimming pools, double portraits and monumental landscapes, plus photographs, videos and books. Driven by a constant desire to disseminate his art more widely, from the 1980s Hockney adopted the new tools of technology, conceiving images to circulate on the internet in an act of sharing that is dear to him.
