The film works of Dean, a Turner Prize short-lister and winner of the Hugo Boss Prize, have always seemed more sotto voce than the efforts of her Young British Artist compadres Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin—and perhaps all the more alluring for it. As part of a two-month-long series of solo shows by women artists, four film portraits depict creatives Merce Cunningham, Julie Mehretu, Claes Oldenburg and Cy Twombly going about their respective practices.
