David Hockney at Tate Britain on The Art Channel Part 2

 

Grace and Joshua conclude their visit to the large retrospective of David Hockney’s art at Tate Britain spanning 60 years. In this second film, we look at a drawing, a collage made from photographs, a painting made in the Yorkshire wolds and a recent iPad drawing. We wrap up the film by thinking about Hockney’s achievement and enduring popularity.

Our latest Art Channel film explores the extraordinary immersive and interactive films produced by teamLab, a collective inspired by ‘pre-modern’ Japanese painting and contemporary popular Japanese culture such as anime and video gaming. teamLab’s sophisticated mastery of programming and design produces mesmerising spectacles in virtual reality. Their work anticipates a whole new frontierĀ for art and new media.

Magical Surfaces at Parasol Unit, filmed by The Art Channel

Focussing on individual works by Sonja Braas, David Claerbout, Julie Monaco and Joel Sternfeld, the film explores how ‘magical surfaces’ arise from photographs which are animated, invented and staged.
