Tacita Dean at The Fruitmarket Gallery

July 7 – September 30, 2018

“Woman with a Red Hat,” the title of the exhibition at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh, is taken from Tacita Dean’s film, “Event for a Stage,” around which the exhibition pivots.

In the 2015 film, the actor Stephen Dillane acts from a script given to him, page by page, by Dean, seated in the front row of the audience.

The exhibition includes hourly screenings of “Event for a Stage," along with a number of works that examine performance and its relationship to fiction, the imagination and the collective effort of artist and audience.
