Wider Vantages Are Needed Now, Times 18 | David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibtion Symposium

Much of David Hockney's work over the past 35 years—especially during the past ten years, which forms the focus of David Hockney: A Bigger Exhibition—has involved his attempts to break free of what he calls, the tyranny of one-point perspective. In particular, the artist has created a remarkable series of 18-screen video grids in which a single unfurling scene is broken up into as many as 18 separate vanishing points. Hockney insists that such experiments form a natural outgrowth of the Cubist project, and that this mission is, if anything, more vital and more urgent today than ever before. In other words, "wider vantages" are desperately needed across all sorts of fields, not just the arts.
