Los Angeles, CA
Two new works by British European artist Tacita Dean engage with the sites and collections of the Getty Center and Getty Villa Museum.
Her 16mm film Pan Amicus imagines the landscapes around the Getty Center and the Getty Villa as part of Arcadia, the mythical home of Pan, Greek god of nature. Her portfolio of 50 objects, Monet Hates Me, traces Dean’s chance encounters in the vast art historical archives at the Getty Research Institute.
Though Pan Amicus was originally commissioned to celebrate the Getty Center’s 20th anniversary, this installation of both works coincides with the Center’s 25th.
