David Hockney Retrospective Breaks Tate Attendance Record

David Hockney’s retrospective at the Tate Britain has become the gallery’s most popular show at all of its four locations. The exhibition, which was on view February 9 – May 29, 2017 garnered 478,082 visitors. According to The Guardian, nearly 35,000 advance tickets were pre-sold, more than any other show in Tate history.

Alex Farquharson, director of Tate Britain, said the gallery had been the “perfect place to showcase one of our greatest living artists. The response to this retrospective – the first in 29 years – has been incredible. It is wonderful that so many people have had the chance to see it, and that they found the exhibition so exciting, thought-provoking and moving. We look forward to many more people seeing the exhibition when it travels to Paris and New York.”

Friday, May 19, 2017 - Friday, June 30, 2017

Pace Prints collaborator Nicola López will have a solo exhibition of massive woodcut prints, installed in a site-specific installation at Jacob Lewis Gallery, 521 W. 26th Street, 4th Floor. Big Windows : Skin : Portals will be on view May 19, 2017—June 30, 2017, with an opening reception May 18, 6-8pm.

From the gallery:

In Big Windows : Skin : Portals, Nicola López draws on her recent monumental installation In Gentle Defiance of Gravity and Form at Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville, to explore architecture as a metaphor for the human experience on both societal and individual levels. Here, López bisects the gallery with the framed-out structure of a wall supporting oversized woodcut prints of windows. The work reorients the viewer’s experience of architecture by creating an exterior within the gallery interior. This constructed slice of cityscape exposes the force and fragility of architectural ambition.

“In a way architecture is very much an externalization of our cultural values,” López explains in an interview at the MOCA Jacksonville, “It seeks to express a society of strength and potential and power but also embodies the real fragility of it.”

At the same time as it speaks to cultural values and aspirations, architecture also serves as a metaphor for the human body. Galvanized steel studs are the bones of a structural skeleton that is skinned by the mylar prints. The windows are at once barrier and portal: the thin membrane that marks the limit between what lies within and what lies beyond.

Dubuffet Drawings at the Hammer Museum
Sunday, January 29, 2017 - Sunday, April 30, 2017

On view at The Hammer Museum at UCLA is an exhibition of nearly 100 works on paper from leading French artist of the 20th century, Jean Dubuffet from the artist’s most innovative years.

From the museum:

Dubuffet (1901–1985) eschewed traditional notions of beauty in art in favor of what he perceived as more authentic forms of expression, inspired by graffiti, children’s drawings, and the creations of psychiatric patients. Drawing played a major role in his development as he explored on paper new subjects and techniques and experimented with non-traditional tools and modes of application. This is the first in-depth museum exhibition of Dubuffet’s drawings. It includes almost one hundred works from his most innovative years—between 1935 and 1962—borrowed from private and public collections in France and the United States. Dubuffet applied his radical approach to subjects ranging from views of Paris and its metro to nudes, portraits of writers, majestic beards, and scenes from the Sahara desert. His art has been influential on later generations of artists up to today.
