Olafur Eliasson returns to Tate Modern for a major survey of his career so far. Most of the works have never been seen in the UK before.

In Eliasson’s captivating installations you become aware of your senses, people around you, and the world beyond. He creates a rainbow from a punctured hosepipe and covers a vast wall with Icelandic moss. You can walk through a disorienting tunnel of fog or a kaleidoscope of mirrors. You can cast coloured shadows on the walls.

Within the exhibition will be an area which explores Eliasson’s deep engagement with social and environmental issues. And once a week you’ll be able to communicate with Eliasson’s 100-strong team in his Berlin studio via a live link.

The exhibition will continue with a spectacular installation in the landscape around Tate Modern. Eliasson will also be taking over the Terrace Bar, creating a new version of the innovative vegetarian canteen from his studio.

Eliasson has a long relationship with Tate Modern. His glowing sun, The Weather Project, drew hundreds of thousands of people to the Turbine Hall in 2003. More recently Ice Watch 2018 brought chunks of ice from Greenland to London. This exhibition will be another unforgettable experience.
