2016 Hyundai Commission:
Philippe Parreno

4 October 2016 - 2 April 2017
Turbine hall, Tate Modern | London, UK

Tate Modern and Hyundai Motor have announced that French artist Philippe Parreno will undertake this year’s Hyundai Commission for the Turbine Hall, opening on 4 October 2016.

Parreno (b. 1964) works across film, video, sound, sculpture, performance and information technology. A key artist of his generation, Parreno explores the borders between reality and fiction. He is known for investigating and redefining the gallery-going experience as an immersive encounter.

The Hyundai Commission is a series of site-specific installations by contemporary artists in Tate Modern’s iconic Turbine Hall. It is made possible by a unique long-term partnership between Tate and Hyundai Motor, confirmed until 2025 as part of the longest initial commitment from a corporate sponsor in Tate’s history.

The October 4 opening of the Hyundai Commission will follow the unveiling of the new Tate Modern on 17 June 2016. Created by architects Herzog & de Meuron, it will be the most important new cultural building to open in the UK for almost twenty years.
