Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life




Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern following his world-renowned Turbine Hall installation The weather project in 2003, for an unmissable exhibition of his career to date.

Marking the most comprehensive solo presentation of Eliasson’s work, and his first major survey in the UK, the exhibition offers a timely opportunity to experience the immersive world of this endlessly inquisitive artist. Driven by his interests in perception, movement, and the interaction of people and their environments, he creates artworks which offer experiences that can be shared by visitors of all ages. Tate Modern has brought together around 40 works spanning the last three decades – from celebrated early installations like Beauty1993, to new paintings and sculptures. The exhibition also examines Eliasson’s deep engagement with issues of climate change, sustainable energy and migration as well as architecture, allowing viewers to explore how these projects extend his artistic practice.The artist’s work will feature on the terrace outside Tate Modern, with further installations such as Room for one colour 1997 animating the concourse outside the exhibition space. Studio Olafur Eliasson has also collaborated with Tate Eats on a special menu for Tate Modern’s Terrace Bar.
