David Hockney's iPad art will be exhibited at ROM beginning Oct. 8.
Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) has landed the North American debut of an exhibit by artist David Hockney – showcasing his work on iPhone and iPad – this fall.
Presented by the ROM’s Institute for Contemporary Culture, David Hockney’s Fresh Flowers: Drawings on iPhone and iPad, reveals the artist’s use of this new medium.
It will be on view from Oct. 8 to Jan. 1, 2012 and marks Hockney’s first major show in Canada in over 20 years.
Originally presented by the Fondation Pierre Bergé/Yves Saint Laurent in Paris the exhibition features approximately 100 iPhone drawings displayed on 20 iPod Touches, as well as an additional 100 iPad drawings on 20 iPads.
More than 20 Hockney drawings in the exhibition will feature playback animations, allowing viewers insight into the artist’s creative process, as one views the works being drawn from start to finish.
