Frith Street Gallery is delighted to announce that Tacita Dean will stage three distinct exhibitions in an unprecedented collaboration between the Royal Academy of Arts, National Portrait Gallery, and National Gallery, London opening in March 2018.
The three exhibitions, Tacita Dean: LANDSCAPE, PORTRAIT, STILL LIFE, shaped by Dean’s response to the individual character of each institution, will explore genres traditionally associated with painting – landscape at the Royal Academy of Arts, portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery and still life at the National Gallery – seen through the contemporary prism of Dean’s wide-ranging artistic practice.
Frith Street Gallery, Soho Square (60 Frith Street) will now have the same opening hours as Frith Street Gallery, Golden Square. Both spaces will be open Tuesday to Friday 10am—6pm & Saturday 11am—5pm or by appointment.

L’art dans les chapelles
Chapelle Saint-Jean, Le Sourn, France
7 July – 17 September 2017
This installation in the Chapelle Saint-Jean is made of hanging ceramic musical shape notes, converting the church itself into a musical instrument. There are 7 different shapes: do re mi fa sol la ti. Approximately two hundred of these hang on thread from the metal cross beams of the church. Apfelbaum has also made mallets for the piece, and will present a series of notation spray drawings which are a reference to graffiti where writing is a form of drawing.
