David Hockney: The Jugglers

23 May–1 September 2013

Whitney Museum of American Art
New York

This exhibition marks the US premiere of David Hockney’s first video installation, The Jugglers, June 24th 2012 (2012). Filmed by 18 cameras, a group of jugglers make up a vibrantly kinetic composition as they move across a grid of 18 screens, accompanied by a lively musical soundtrack. The multiple perspectives place the choice of where to look with the viewer, demonstrating the artist’s exploration of technology’s ability to open up new ways of looking at, and making, images.
