Tacita Dean: landscape, portrait, still life
NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY: 15 MARCH – 28 MAY 2018
ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS: DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED
THE NATIONAL GALLERY: 15 MARCH – 28 MAY 2018
In an unprecedented collaboration, three major London galleries – the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts, and National Gallery – will open three distinct exhibitions of work by artist Tacita Dean (b.1965).
The three exhibitions, shaped by Dean’s response to the individual character of each institution, will explore genres traditionally associated with painting seen through the contemporary prism of Dean’s wide-ranging artistic practice.
Tacita Dean: PORTRAIT at the National Portrait Gallery will focus on portraiture primarily through the medium of 16mm film, revealing the artist’s own longstanding and personal interest in portraiture as a genre.
Tacita Dean: LANDSCAPE at the Royal Academy of Arts will explore landscape in its broadest sense, from botany to cosmography, travel to weather.
Tacita Dean: STILL LIFE at the National Gallery will present an innovative exploration of the genre through Dean’s lens as one of its leading contemporary practitioners.
