A fresh look at the dynamic relationship between performance and painting from 1950 to the present day.
Taking its title from David Hockney’s iconic 1967 image of a Californian swimming pool and Jack Hazan’s docu-fiction film about Hockney’s life, it brings together a range of key works by artists including Yves Klein, Jackson Pollock and Cindy Sherman.
Moving through half a century of work in painting, video and photography, and including archival and documentary material, this major group exhibition shows how performance art has challenged and energised the medium of painting for successive generations.
