John Hockney, David Hockney’s brother, will give a 120-minute lavishly illustrated talk about the artist, his family and the friends he has painted, photographed, I- Padded, etched, and lithographed in The BACC Art Talk 2018: Lesson Abroad Series #1 “Hockney on Hockney” on Tuesday (October 16) in Meeting Room 501 of the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre.

 The talk runs from 6 to 8pm.

With humour, and an intimate understanding, John examines the many genres David Hockney has mastered during his life of making pictures. The talk embraces his early life, the Man, The Artist, and his pursuance of knowledge.

David Hockney is a renowned English painter, draftsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer.

“The hand, the eye, and the heart are important to every picture I make,” Hockney has said. :I’ll do it till I drop.”

This programme is a collaboration between British Council Thailand and BACC. The lecture is conducted in English, with summary translation in Thai and free of charge. No reservation is required. Limited seats are available. (A larger room will be announced in case of high demand.)
