Richard Gray Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of David Hockney opening in Chicago on Thursday, November 21. There will be a reception from 6-8pm, and the public is welcome to attend. This will be Hockney's first exhibition in Chicago in over ten years. A corresponding illustrated catalogue is available.

The Thrill is Spatial is centered around eight exceptional paintings and drawings, commencing with portraits of Hockney's lifelong muse Celia Birtwell from the 1970s and culminating with Colorado River (1998), a majestic 15-panel landscape of the Grand Canyon. The exhibition also features The Conversation (1980), an iconic portrait of curator Henry Geldzahler and Raymond Foye; a vibrant still life Gauguin's Chair (1988); and a rare, small-scale pool painting Montcalm Pool, Los Angeles (1980).

The exhibition opens on the eve of Richard Gray Gallery's 50th anniversary.
The gallery was established in Chicago in November 1963.
