The Getty's two-part exhibit "Happy Birthday, Mr. Hockney" (which runs through Nov. 26) celebrates the artist's recent 80th birthday, and features self-portraits and photographs, including paintings, prints, Polaroids, photo collages and iPad drawings. In conjunction with the display, Lawrence Weschler leads Happy Birthday, David Hockney, a conversation with physicist Charles Falco and artists Ramiro Gomez and Tacita Dean, who screens her 2016, short 16mm film on Hockney, Portraits. Weschler is the author of the 2008 book True to Life: Twenty-Five Years of Conversations With David Hockney. Weschler also discusses Hockney's interest in Father Pavel Florensky, an early–20th century, Russian Orthodox priest and intellectual.
