Philippe Parreno: The Hyundai Commission
Since Tate Modern opened in London in 2000, the Turbine Hall has hosted some of the worlds most memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art, reaching an audience of millions. The way artists have interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionized public perceptions of contemporary art in the 21st century. Philippe Parreno (b. 1964) is a leading French artist who works in film, video, sound, sculpture, performance, and information technology. His work explores the borders between reality and fiction, and he sees his exhibitions as choreographed spaces that follow a score, during which a series of different events unfold. These kaleidoscopic environments redefine the museum-going experience. Created in close collaboration with the artist, the book features a fully illustrated survey of Parrenos life and work and an in-depth interview with curator Andrea Lissoni. Exploring in fascinating detail the artistic processes involved in creating this exciting new work, it includes stunning photographs of the dramatic new installation in the Turbine Hall from October 2016 through April 2017.
