A new gallery, The David Hockney Gallery, opens today, 7 July, at Cartwright Hall, Bradford, to celebrate the artist with a new permanent exhibition.

Jill Iredale, Curator at Cartwright Hall, was given exclusive access to David Hockney in this, his 80th year, and worked closely with the artist’s studio to create a permanent display that unearths his roots in Bradford and follows the first steps on his incredible journey towards becoming one of the world’s most significant living artists.
