Coming soon - We Two Boys: Early Works by Alan Davie & David Hockney. 19 October 2019 - 19 January 2020.
In 1958 Alan Davie had his first solo exhibition at Wakefield Art Gallery, which went on to tour nationally and launched Davie’s career. A young attendee at the Wakefield exhibition was David Hockney, then a student at Bradford College of Art. The exhibition was a pivotal influence on Hockney’s artistic development and shortly after this visit, Hockney moved to London to take up a place at the Royal College of Art. This major new exhibition will bring together around 45 paintings and works on paper, many of which have not been seen publicly for decades. Find out more hepworthwakefield.org/wetwoboys/.
