An Aside was one in a series of exhibitions selected by artists initiated by the Hayward Gallery. As well as being intriguing and thought-provoking exhibitions, they also shed light on the working methods and primary interests of their selector, in this case British artist Tacita Dean.
Tacita Dean, for the first time, applied her non-programmatic approach of making work to selecting an exhibition of work by other artists. Throughout the development of this project, chance encounters led her to create formal and emotional connections between works and artists to allow the development of unexpected themes and links. The exhibition included painting and sculpture, slide and film installations and a large number of works on paper by an international and cross-generational group of artists.
