The New Museum presents an exhibition of works by British artist Tacita Dean. The presentation focuses on a group of recent pieces that capture five important American artists and thinkers of the last fifty years, and features Merce Cunningham, Leo Steinberg, Julie Mehretu, Claes Oldenburg and Cy Twombly. These works are beautifully crafted portraits of each individual, opening a lens onto their artistic processes and personal memories. This installation, organized in close collaboration with Dean, provides insight into the way in which her filmmaking intersects with painting, sculpture, writing, and dance.
