GAVIN TURK: IN SEARCH OF ARIADNE

A new exhibition by artist Gavin Turk opens on 6 October 2022. In Search of Ariadne unravels the cultural meme of the reclining figure in art. What is the reclining figure? Why is this something that artists have been intrigued with for centuries and where does this form originate?

Hockney’s Eye: The Art and Technology of Depiction

Tue 15 March - Sun 28 August

The Fitzwilliam Museum & The Heong Gallery

Through both traditional and cutting-edge ways of making art, the exhibition explores Hockney’s obsession with how we see the world, and how our world of time and space can be captured on the surface of a flat picture.

In his use of cameras, digital drawing, the iPad, and digital film, Hockney follows a tradition of creative experiments with optical devices that goes back from Ingres’ proposed use of the camera lucida to Canaletto’s camera obscura and to the birth of Renaissance naturalism in the 15th century.

In The Fitzwilliam Museum’s picture galleries, Hockney’s drawings, paintings and digital artworks are shown in a series of provocative encounters with works by artists including Claude Monet, John Constable and Andy Warhol.

The display at The Heong Gallery charts Hockney’s pioneering modern experiments from the 1960s to the present day in bringing hand, eye, and optical instruments together, with the iconic Grand Canyon I (2017) among the many glorious and daring works on display.
