"Time and Place" is a new exhibit at the San Diego Museum of Art that explores the most recent work of Sir Howard Hodgkin (born 1932), one of Great Britain’s most renowned painters of the later 20th century.
Hodgkin’s work plays with the notion of “representational pictures of emotional situations,” and viewers delight exploring in the intense interactions of paint and surface. A brilliant colorist whose work lies between representation and abstraction, Hodgkin defies definitions.
Comprised of over 20 paintings, this exhibition spans the last 10 years of the artist’s career and includes a number of works not previously seen by a broad public. The exhibition also features a powerful body of new work, painted in the last year, never exhibited before.
The San Diego Museum of Art is proud to be the only U.S. venue for this exhibition, and the first major museum show of his work to be held on the West Coast.
The exhibit will be open to the public Jan. 29, 2011 through May 1, 2011.
Tuesday through Saturday- 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday- 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
