Frieze Academy presents Tacita Dean, who will discuss her life as an artist, her practice, ideas and techniques with National Portrait Gallery’s Director, Nicholas Cullinan.
Tacita Dean grew to prominence in the 1990s, and is now considered to be one of the most significant contemporary artists working today.
Her three concurrent exhibitions, ‘Landscape’ at the Royal Academy, ‘Portrait’ at the National Portrait Gallery and ‘Still-Life’ at the National Gallery, will exhibit Dean’s comprehensive response to each institution and her varied artistic practice. From her extended exploration of film as a medium to her large-scale drawings, the shows will present new work as well as work that she has curated – often from her contemporaries – alongside pieces from each institutions’ collections.
