Olafur Eliasson: In Real Life

Tate Modern, London

11 Jul 2019 - 5 Jan 2020

For more than three decades, the Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has explored the ways that people interact with their environment, with installations that use elemental materials such as light, water and air to by turns disorientate and concentrate the mind of the viewer. Eliasson’s first major survey in the UK also reveals his longstanding engagement with ecological issues. Find out more from the Tate’s website.
