"Love Life: David Hockney’s Timescapes" by Lawrence Weschler


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. In a profound sense, they can be viewed as one sustained embrace of life in all its marvel in the face of all that desolation.

The Art of Painting Music: Allegro (ma non troppo)

Wednesdays–Sundays, 1:00–5:00 p.m., plus Fridays 6-8:45 p.m.

Gyulai's work explores the connections between music and the expressive possibilities of paint on canvas. She listens and looks at music as a subject, object, inspiration and–like Diebenkorn–invokes the dynamic tension between the poles of abstraction and representation, creating substance from the most ephemeral phenomena.
