October 26, 2013 - 2:00pm4:00pm

The remarkable past 30 years of Hockney's artistic development, culminating in the work on view in David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition, have been haunted by mortality, beginning with the AIDS crisis, which tracked almost exactly with the development of the Polaroid collages with which this whole latter phase of his career began.
