In early 2023, London will see an opening of a brand new art center – Lightroom, an extraordinary four-story-high space in Kings Cross equipped with the latest digital projection and audio technology. Its founders, 59 Productions and London Theatre Company, imagine this venue as London’s prime home for spectacular artist-led shows.
The new cultural venue will be inaugurated with an exhibition by David Hockney, one of the most acclaimed living artists. The artist is known for keeping up with the latest technologies, so the upcoming venture, Bigger & Closer (not smaller & further away), is just an extension of Hockney’s explorations in the last couple of years. The exhibition will bring together some of his iconic paintings alongside some rarely-seen pieces and examples of newly created work.
The New Presentation of Hockney’s Work
During the course of three years, David Hockney and the creators of Lightroom have been working on this project. The show’s director, Mark Grimmer of 59 Productions, stated they have worked with the artist “to bring together large-scale projected images, animation, archival and bespoke interviews, and a commissioned score to create a new kind of show which owes as much to Hockney’s theatrical design as to his painting, drawing, and photography.”
