Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life

This summer, Olafur Eliasson is returning to Tate Modern for an unmissable exhibition of his career to date.

In Eliasson’s captivating installations, you become aware of your senses, people around you, and the world beyond. See a rainbow, Icelandic moss, a fog tunnel and kaleidoscopic mirrors! 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 United Kingdom 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.

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.
