The Dante Project | 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 The Dante Project, a collaboration between choreographer Wayne McGregor, composer Thomas Ad?s and artist Tacita Dean, staged at the Royal Opera House in London in October 2021. Based on Dante Alighieri?s The Divine Comedy (1308?21), the ballet and Dean?s designs formed three distinctive parts mirroring Dante?s journey through the realms of the dead ? InfernoPurgatorio and Paradiso. This book, illustrated with an array of photographs from the performance itself, includes an essay by art historian Briony Fer, which places Dean?s body of work in the context of Dante?s long influence on artists.
