Jugglers Exhibition by Hockney, Whitney Museum. New York
Jugglers Exhibition by Hockney, Whitney Museum. New York

This exhibition marks the U.S. premiere of David Hockney’s first video installation: The Jugglers, June 24th 2012 (2012). Filmed using eighteen fixed cameras, this multiscreen tableau shows a group of jugglers as they move in a procession across a grid of eighteen screens. The figures, dressed in black and juggling brightly colored objects, perform in front of a pink wall and on a blue floor, creating a vibrant, colorful composition whose energy is echoed by a lively musical soundtrack. Hockney’s creation of a composite image from multiple perspectives places the choice of where to look with the viewer, demonstrating his ongoing interest in how technologies can open up new ways of looking at, and making, images.

David Hockney: The Jugglers is organized by Chrissie Iles, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Curator.
