One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting | Author: Tacita Dean

One of the most important living artists of our times, Tacita Dean is renowned for her singular poetic vision and distinctive body of works, which encompass film, photography, sound, installation, drawing, printmaking and collage. This Sydney-exclusive exhibition will bring together important artworks, the substantial majority created by the artist in the last five years, that convey Dean's extraordinarily beautiful investigations into chance, memory, entropy, history and the passing of time. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue presented in three volumes.

This volume is dedicated to One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting (2021). Tacita Dean knew that fellow artists Luchita Hurtado and Julie Mehretu shared a birthday and were exactly fifty years apart in age. Realising they were going to turn collectively one hundred and fifty years old in 2020, she filmed them in conversation in Luchita Hurtado's Santa Monica apartment. The resulting 16mm film One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting (2021) is a moment in time. In the sun-filled room, both painters talk freely together about life, death, motherhood and painting. This richly illustrated book includes a full transcription of their conversation and an essay by LACMA associate curator Jennifer King. Find the other volumes of this catalogue HERE.
