OLAFUR ELIASSON: EXPERIENCE
Conceived in close collaboration with the artist, this survey tracks Eliasson’s artistic practice from its start in the 1990s to the present – including works completed this year. Through hundreds of illustrations bracketed by writings on and by Eliasson, the book provides an unparalleled overview of his remarkably accessible output, from such large-scale interactive experiences as The weather project (2003) at Tate Modern to smaller, more delicate works on paper or made of glass, and includes photography, painting, and film.
Olafur Eliasson is an Icelandic-Danish artist whose works have been exhibited globally in institutions such as MoMA, Tate, and the Venice Biennale. He works and lives in Copenhagen and Berlin. Michelle Kuo is the Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
