David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) is set to return to Lightroom in London’s King’s Cross from 17 June.


David Hockney uses the extraordinary capabilities of this innovative four-storey-high venue in King’s Cross to take audiences on a personal journey through 60 years of his art. The artist’s process is revealed in a cycle of six themed chapters, featuring his most iconic images alongside lesser-seen pieces and newly created work.

A unique and deeply personal running commentary by the artist is paired with an original score by Nico Muhly, and the show is directed by Mark Grimmer of 59 Productions. For lifelong fans and those new to Hockney alike, Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away) affords unparalleled access to the mind of one of Britain’s most loved artists.

Hockney treats Lightroom’s space and technology as a powerful new medium for sharing his unique perspective with the world, saying: “I am very glad that my show Bigger & Closer is coming back to London. We all need more joy in our lives, and I think my show has a lot of it. Love life.”
