Galerie Marian Goodman Paris is pleased to announce a forthcoming 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 will debut new works made for the occasion across the gallery at 79, rue du Temple as well as the Librairie Marian Goodman at 66, rue du Temple. The exhibition will open on the evening of Friday, June 8th with a reception from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
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.
