Tacita Dean: Still Life at The National Gallery Free

From to

About

Explore still life through the lens of Tacita Dean, one of the genre's leading contemporary practitioners

Curated by Dean and guided by her own understanding of the genre, 'STILL LIFE' presents a diverse selection of works in a variety of mediums.

Works by the artist herself - including a new film diptych made especially for the exhibition, 'Ideas for Sculpture in a Setting', and 'Prisoner Pair' (2008, 16mm) - feature alongside works by Dean's contemporaries, including Thomas Demand, Roni Horn, and Wolfgang Tillmans, and paintings from the National Gallery Collection, such as Zurbaran's Cup of Water and a Rose.

'STILL LIFE' examines the genre's legacy within the history of art and demonstrates the continued importance of the still life genre and the National Gallery Collection as sources of inspiration in contemporary art practice.

This exhibition is part of an unprecedented collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts, who are hosting related exhibitions, 'Tacita Dean: PORTRAIT' and 'Tacita Dean: LANDSCAPE,' respectively.
