  • Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern with this unmissable exhibition

    In Eliasson’s captivating installations you become aware of your senses, people around you and the world beyond.

    Some artworks introduce natural phenomena such as rainbows to the gallery space. Others use reflections and shadows to play with the way we perceive and interact with the world. Many works result from the artist’s research into complex geometry, motion patterns, and his interest in colour theory. All but one of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

    Within the exhibition will be an area which explores Eliasson’s deep engagement with society and the environment. Discover what an artist’s perspective can bring to issues of climate change, energy, migration as well as architecture. And once every other week you’ll be able to communicate with people from Eliasson’s 100-strong team in his Berlin studio via a live link.

    The kitchen team at Studio Olafur Eliasson will also create a special menu and programme of related events for Tate Modern’s Terrace Bar, based on the organic, vegetarian and locally sourced food served in his Berlin studio.

    Eliasson has a long relationship with Tate Modern. His glowing sun, The weather project, drew more than two million people to the Turbine Hall in 2003. More recently Ice Watch 2018 brought chunks of ice from Greenland to London. This exhibition will provide another unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.

    Waterfall 2019

    Visitors will also encounter a dramatic new waterfall sculpture situated on the terrace behind the gallery. Eliasson’s Waterfall 2019 is characteristic of his fusion of nature and technology, and his ongoing investigation of how we think about and respond to our environment. The 11m high sculpture is a continuation of Eliasson’s Waterfall series which have previously been hosted in cities across the world including Sydney (1998), New York (2008), São Paulo (2011) and Versailles.

    Extended hours on Friday and Saturday until 10.00

    Tickets are £18.00 with concessions. FREE for under 12s
