Friday Nights at the de Young | Fall 2018

One of San Francisco’s most celebrated after-hours museum events returns for a fall season of 2018.

These nine Friday Nights feature free admission to the main-level galleries highlighted by a reinterpretation of contemporary art in their permanent collection and new acquisitions called Specters of Disruption. In addition, Friday Nights will offer reduced-price tickets of $14 to the exhibition Contemporary Muslim Fashions from 6–8:30 pm.

Through social-media moments and in-person dialogue, visitors can engage and commune with the art and with one another in a warm and welcoming setting. Enjoy specialty drinks and mocktails, coffees, teas, and snacks. Bring your friends. Strike a pose at the selfie wall. Listen to music. Make art. Activities take place from 6–8:30 pm.

7-8:30 pm: David Hockney Yosemite II – Panel Discussion: Back Through the Looking Glass | Koret Auditorium
Between 1999 and 2001, David Hockney and several of his studio associates became increasingly convinced that the Old Masters—starting with Ingres, but wending back past Vermeer, Caravaggio, and Lotto, all the way to Van Eyck and Brunelleschi (around 1420)—had used optical devices of various sorts (camera lucida, camera obscura, lenses, and concave mirrors) as crucial aids in their depictions of physical reality. Those speculations culminated in Hockney’s sumptuously illustrated monograph Secret Knowledge: Rediscovering the Lost Techniques of the Old Masters (2001, with a revised and expanded edition in 2006), a volume whose claims proved wildly controversial.
