Explore | Tacita Dean: Blind Folly

Tacita Dean: Blind Folly is the first major museum survey in the United States of work by the British European visual artist Tacita Dean (b. 1965). The exhibition, organized in close collaboration with Dean, spotlights her career-defining approach to creating art through unmediated and chance-based drawing processes across a variety of mediums, from film to printmaking.

The show’s title reflects Dean’s desire to let the behavior of her mediums dictate the results of her work. For the artist, the playful British phrase connoting foolishness, “blind folly,” represents her trust in the role chance and fate play in the creative act. She has said that her process is about “how to find by not looking.”
