Tonight at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Aspen Film and Galerie Maximillian present a screening of the new documentary “Hockney.”
David Hockney is widely considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century. His contributions to the 1960s pop art movement are prominent in the world of painting, printmaking, photography and other visual fine art mediums.
Nancy Wilhelms, the executive director of Anderson Ranch, said the scenes depicted in Hockney’s works are representative of what Coloradans love.
“A lot of his work is about sunshine and recreation and being outdoors … and there’s a lot of that in Aspen,” she said.
There will be a reception prior to the screening at Galerie Maximillian, where original Hockney works collected by local art dealer Albert Sanford will be on display. That starts at 5:30 p.m. with the film screening to follow at the ISIS Theater. Tickets can be purchased online at aspenfilm.org.
