RA Lates presents ‘A Hockney Happening’: a night-long celebration of all things David Hockney from the early 1960s to the present day.

Think LA swimming pools, colourful Yorkshire landscapes, Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell portraits, photo collages and Walt Whitman poetry as we lead you through Hockney’s world.

Experience the RA transformed by a unique line up of artists, performers and DJs who will take-over three floors of the RA and recreate different Hockney eras, plus film screenings, activities, talks, street food stalls, cocktails and more.

Dress code
