UCLA Department of Art Lectures: Tacita Dean

Tuesday Apr 24, 2007 7:00PM This is a past program

Tacita Dean’s methodical investigations of memory, time, history, and loss are explored in a variety of media, including film, photography, and drawing. Her most recent film, Kodak (2006), follows the making of the final run of 16mm film as it threads through several miles of machinery and explores the abandoned corners of the Kodak film factory in Chalon-Sur-Saône, France. Dean received The Hugo Boss Prize 2006 and a survey of her works was presented last year at the Schaulager, Basel, Switzerland.


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, and an anonymous donor.
