Tacita Dean @ Frith Street Gallery

16 September 2021 - 13 November 2021

An exhibition of new work by Tacita Dean at two locations.

At the Golden Square gallerythe ground floor features works relating to Dean’s forthcoming designs for The Dante Project, a new commission by The Royal Ballet, based on Dante Alighieri’s 1320 longform narrative poem The Divine Comedy.  Dean’s sets move from the stark black-and-white negative backdrop for Inferno, through the strange, transitional state of Purgatorio before emerging into a celebration of colour in Paradiso, the final act.

 In the lower gallery, Dean shows a new film called One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting. The 50-minute 16mm film takes the form of a conversation between the artists Julie Mehretu and the late Luchita Hurtado, as they both shared a birthday.
