The works of David Hockney, who is considered one of the most significant and creative artists of our time, are exhibited in Turkey for the first time with the exhibition The Arrival of Spring, Normandy, 2020 hosted by the Sakıp Sabancı Museum. The exhibition, which comprises the iPad paintings that he produced at his house in Normandy during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic; hosts events that shed light on the art of Hockney, who has been drawing with iPhone and iPad since the 2000s and has always searched for new technologies and methods throughout his long career. Beril Sezen, who gives lectures at various universities in the fields of architectural design and visual communication, will deliver a conference talk titled ‘David Hockney and Intermediality’ as a part of the exhibition.

The conference talk will focus on Hockney's works called ‘Photographic Drawings,’ which interact with two different art forms – painting and photography – and two different mediums – the analogue and the digital. In the aforementioned operations, merged artistic fields and techniques gain the power to present a new image and a new sensation. The reasons that led Hockney to challenge photography as a painter does not only transform photographic production, but with the introduction of new media, also makes it possible to rethink the possibilities of painting.

The event will be held in Turkish. Registration required.
