Galerie Marian Goodman Paris presents an exhibition with Tacita Dean and Julie Mehretu.
This is the first exhibition to unite the work of these long-time friends, in a unique collaboration which debuts new works made for the occasion.
Tacita Dean is currently the subject of a landmark series of exhibitions in London across three venerable institutions – The Royal Academy, The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery – a unique partnership that marks the first time these museums have simultaneously presented the work of a single artist. In October the Kunsthaus Bregenz will dedicate its Peter Zumthor building to an ambitious exhibition of Dean’s films and a new, monumental chalk drawing.
Julie Mehretu was recently the subject of retrospective exhibitions at the Serralves Museum in Porto, Portugal and the Fundación Botín in Santander, Spain. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is currently planning a major retrospective exhibition which will open in 2019. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art has recently unveiled a monumental painting in two parts which was commissioned by the museum for a long-term installation in the main entrance lobby of the museum.
