Documentary, Biography | 2016 | NR. 1hr 52min
CAST: David Hockney, Arthur Lambert, Colin Self DIRECTOR: Randall Wright TUESDAY FILM SERIES

Hockney weaves together a portrait of the multifaceted artist from frank interviews with close friends and never before seen footage from his own personal archive. One of the great surviving icons of the 1960s, Hockney's career may have started with almost instant success but in private he has struggled with his art, relationships, and the tragedy of AIDS, making his optimism and sense of adventure truly uplifting. Hockney is funny, inspiring, bold and visionary.

There will be a discussion following the 6:30 PM screening led by Elise Richman, a Tacoma-based artist and Associate Professor of Art at the University of Puget Sound.

A fascinating examination of the mind, motivations and legacy of one of the 20th Century's most important, modern artists.

"Hockney" is less interested in providing a conventional top-to-bottom narrative than in capturing a sense of who Hockney is and what is important to him.
