How a focus on the present moment has given David Hockney many lives

David Hockney is one of the most celebrated UK-born artists of the 20th century, and the painter, photographer and designer has hardly slowed down in the 21st. Directed by the acclaimed UK documentary filmmaker Lucy Walker for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, David Hockney In the Now (in six minutes) expeditiously traverses the artists’s form, content and decades-spanning career. Along the way, the short covers how a Brit could become ‘the painter of Southern California’, and how Hockney’s inclination towards reinvention and adaptation have helped him remain a remarkably relevant cultural figure well into his 70s.

Director: Lucy Walker
