Among the city’s most well-known exports, Hockney registered as a conscientious objector, avoiding national service and working as a hospital porter. That societal conscience remains apparent today; he’s supporting a campaign by British artists calling for the prompt release of the Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei.
