This publication is dedicated to One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting (2021).
Tacita Dean knew that fellow artists Luchita Hurtado and Julie Mehretu shared a birthday. Realising they were going to turn collectively one hundred and fifty years old in 2020, she filmed them in conversation in Luchita Hurtado’s Santa Monica apartment.
The resulting 16mm film One Hundred and Fifty Years of Painting (2021) is a moment in time.
In the sun filled room, both painters talk freely together about life, death, motherhood and painting.
This richly illustrated book includes a full transcription of the conversation.
Published on occasion of the exhibition ‘Tacita Dean’, 9 Jul 2022 – 5 Feb 2023, Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean.
