In 2018, the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy of Arts will host major exhibitions of the work of Tacita Dean. Each will provide an encounter with the filmmaker's work through a different lens. This book brings together works from all three exhibitions - both new and retrospective - with words by leading novelists and thinkers who provide a unique insight into Dean's chosen genres: landscape, portrait and still-life. Dean first came to the attention of the art world with her 16 mm film The Story of Beard (1992). She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1998 and has since been a powerful advocate for her medium. Published at a career-defining moment, this book provides a new and authoritative view of a hugely influential filmmaker who has been at the forefront of British art for over twenty years.
