Taking place across the gallery’s two spaces in Golden Square and Soho Square, Frith Street Gallery presents an exhibition of new work by Tacita Dean.
The exhibition features works relating to Dean’s designs for The Dante Project, a new commission by The Royal Ballet set to receive its world premiere at London’s Royal Opera House in October 2021. Based on Dante Alighieri’s 1320 long-form narrative poem The Divine Comedy, the ballet is choreographed by The Royal Ballet’s Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and features a new composition by conductor-composer Thomas Adès. Dean’s sets move from the stark black-and-white negative backdrop for Inferno, through the strange, transitional state of Purgatorio before emerging into a celebration of colour in Paradiso, the final act.
At the Soho Square gallery, the two works on display both come out of Dean’s time spent as artist-in-residence at The Getty Research Centre, Los Angeles, 2014–15.
