Tacita Dean

  • This is a past program

The acclaimed British artist Tacita Dean speaks about the medium of film, time, and other issues related to her latest film, JG (2013), inspired by her correspondence with the British author J. G. Ballard (1930–2009) regarding connections between his short story “The Voices of Time” (1960) and Robert Smithson’s iconic earthwork and film Spiral Jetty (both works, 1970).
