Tacita Dean: PortraitThe first National Portrait Gallery exhibition to be devoted to the medium of film, this major new display will focus on portraiture primarily through the medium of 16mm film. Tacita Dean's longstanding and personal interest in portraiture is shown through her films of influential figures like Merce Cunningham and Claes Oldenburg, both previously unseen in the UK, as well as Cy Twombly and David Hockney. Further highlights include her film diptych of Julie Mehretu, photographic works and two new films, 'Providence', made for the exhibition, and 'His Picture in Little', created specifically for the gallery's permanent collection. You can explore Tacita Dean's complete works at three major London galleries this spring: Portrait at the National Portrait Gallery, Still Life at the National Gallery and Landscape at the Royal Academy of Arts from May 2018.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
