In 2018, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts are hosting major exhibitions of the work of Tacita Dean. Each will provide a different encounter with the filmmaker’s work. This book brings together the works from all three exhibitions – both new and retrospective – with words by leading writers who provide a unique insight into Dean’s chosen genres: landscape, portrait and still life.
Tacita Dean’s films include The Story of Beard (1992), Fernsehturm (2001), Kodak (2006) and FILM (2011). She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998 and has since been a powerful advocate for her medium. Published at a career-defining moment for her, this book provides a new and authoritative view of a hugely influential filmmaker who has been at the forefront of British art for over twenty years.
