Face to FacePortraits of Artists by Tacita Dean, Brigitte Lacombe and Catherine Opie
Organized by renowned writer and curator Helen Molesworth, Face to Face: Portraits of Artists by Tacita Dean, Brigitte Lacombe and Catherine Opie presents portraits of luminaries in the arts by three of the most prominent portraitists of our time.
Face to Face is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue published by ICP and MACK, London, with essays by Molesworth and writer and curator Jarrett Earnest. Find the catalogue in ICP's shop.
Creating an atmosphere of conversations held just beyond the frame of the images, this exhibition features more than 50 photographs by Brigitte Lacombe and Catherine Opie, and two films by Tacita Dean, with bracing, intimate, and resonant portraits of compelling cultural figures including Maya Angelou, Richard Avedon, Louise Bourgeois, Joan Didion, David Hockney, Miranda July, Rick Owens, Martin Scorsese, Patti Smith, Mickalene Thomas, Kara Walker, and John Waters, among others. The exhibition presents some of the often-overlapping subjects immortalized by Dean, Lacombe, and Opie and investigates the charged genre of portraiture, one that often carries a sense of intimacy and exposure simultaneously.
