Landscape occupies a huge portion of David Hockney's work, especially in recent years. As an artist steeped in history, Hockney uses landscape to engage not only with the natural world but also with the history of its representation in the art of the past. The history of landscape art is the history of human experience: it speaks to our sense of ourselves and our relationship with technology, spirituality, history and politics, and much more. Hockney's landscapes are very much part of this history of thought. This talk with art historian Ben Street will address Hockney's landscapes across the sweep of his career.

Ben Street is an art historian, educator and writer based in London. He lectures on masters' programmes for Christie's Education, is a writer on art for the Times Literary Supplement, Art Review and Art Quarterly, and is the author of 'Art Unfolded: A History of Art in Four Colours' (Ilex, 2018).
