A comprehensive collection of drawings by Annette Messager, including 150 works made over the last ten years.

Tête à Tête is the first publication dedicated to Annette Messager’s drawings, featuring previously unseen drawings from 2020 and 2021, which constitute an invaluable lexicon to the mind and work of a trailblazing iconoclast.

Messager redefined the role of women making art and the very nature of sculpture – accomplishments which won her the coveted Golden Lion for best national pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005 and the Praemium Imperiale for sculpture in 2016.

Messager’s subjects range from animal to human, feminist activists to devotional figures, skeletons to ghosts. She broaches the grand themes of love, life, death and the fairy tales, mythologies, superstitions and vanities that lie beneath. The book features 150 full-colour reproductions and a conversation with Annette Messager and Hans Ulrich Obrist from June 2021, published to coincide with an exhibition at Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel, opening 1 March 2022.
