On the occasion of the opening of the new exhibition by Tacita Dean, Mudam invites you to an exceptional event, with a conversation between three major artists in today’s art scene, as well as a festive opening at the Mudam Summer Café.

Since the early 1990s,Tacita Dean (b. 1965, Canterbury) has developed a singular body of work using multiple mediums, like film, photography and sound; drawing, printmaking and collage. Encompassing a diverse array of subjects, her work is characterised by a careful observation of time, a keen attention to history and a love of the fine details in life. Her exhibition at Mudam revolves around two recent projects: the original artworks used in the stage sets for the ballet The Dante Project, which premiered at the Royal Opera House in London in October 2021, and her 16mm film One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting (2021).
