David Hockney: Bigger & Closer opened on 22nd February 2023 and is the launch show for LIGHTROOM – an extraordinary four-storey-high space in Kings Cross equipped with the latest digital projection and audio technology.
Working with one of the worlds most acclaimed and popular living artists, 59 Productions has created a new kind of show which owes as much to Hockney’s theatrical design as to his painting, drawing and photography.
Hockney takes the audience on a personal journey through his art, featuring iconic paintings alongside some rarely seen pieces and some newly created work. His life-long fascination with the possibilities of new media is given vibrant expression in a show that invites visitors to see the world through his eyes.
LIGHTROOM, is a new venture set up by London Theatre Company and 59 Productions and is London’s new home for spectacular artist-led shows.
