Tacita Dean is considered one of the most influential artists alive today.

Highlights will include three films previously unseen in the UK: Stillness, her film of Claes Oldenburg in Manhattan Mouse Museum, and her film diptych of Julie Mehretu. Other works include Mario Merz, Michael Hamburger, Cy Twombly in Edwin Parker, and David Hockney in Portraits.
