Closing soon: 2018 Turbine Hall Installation by Tania Bruguera, Tate Modern, London, until 24 February 2019

hyundai_turbine_hallThe Cuban artist Tania Bruguera (born 1968) has been selected to create the 2018 Hyundai commission for Tate Modern’s central four-stories high Turbine Hall. She is best known for her socially and politically engaged installations, which have in the past addressed topics of migration, border control and institutional power structures. She has created a unique concept for her political approach to art – Arte Util (useful art) – which is developed in her new work for the Turbine Hall. In 2012 Bruguera was also in residence at Tate Modern with her ongoing project Immigrant Movement International, in which visitors were required to line up and pass a lie detector test based on questions from the UK immigration form before being granted access to the Tate Tanks display. The installation is curated by Catherine Wood, Senior Curator of International Art (Performance) and Isabella Maidment, Assistant Curator of Performance, and accompanied by a new book from Tate Publishing (forthcoming March 2019).
