A David Hockney immersive experience is to open in London with a 60 minute long, specially composed score by the American composer Nico Muhly.

Hockney, one of the world’s most acclaimed and popular living artists, has collaborated for three years with the team behind the new venue, Lightroom, which opens in King’s Cross in January.

The show, David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (Not Smaller & Further Away), will allow audiences to travel through Hockney’s iconic work, rarely seen pieces and some newly created material all to music provided by Muhly, and commentary by Hockney himself.

According to a press release, the artist’s “life-long fascination with the possibilities of new media is given vibrant expression in a show that invites visitors to see the world through his eyes”.

Bigger & Closer runs from 25 January–23 April 2023.
