Note to fashion's itinerant class, currently perched in London. Please make Tacita Dean's "The Unilever Series" at Tate Modern a must see. It's an event, a pilgrimage and a rite of passage. It was made by turning a Cinemascope lens 90 degrees and upending the usual landscape format of the movie screen so it becomes vertical, scaling itself to the proportions of the hall. The film itself was constructed using disappearing techniques such as masking, double-exposure and glass matte painting, to recapture the sense of wonderment generated by these skills during the early days of cinema.

Orchestrating a medley of works from key contemporary visionaires such as Gerhard Richter, Pierre Huyghe, Lars Laumann, Artur Zmijewski, Lawrence Weiner , Johanna's Billing, Gabriel Orozco, Thomas Struth, Pawel Althamer,Guido Van der Werve, Olivier Babin, Maurizio Cattelan, William Kentridge and Tacita Dean "As Long As It Lasts" lingers as a seminal assemblage by the brilliant curator Tom Eccles. By juxtaposing this body of artists around a inherently spiritual theme the diverse nature of their aesthetic coalesced in a way that was a remarkable statement of visual grace .
