A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Olafur Eliasson


Fondation Beyeler / Basel / Art

The conceptual Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is concerned with sensorial experience. In 2003, for his installation The Weather Project in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, he created a burning sun that bathed the space in orange. In 2016, he brought waterfalls, fog, and mirrors to the Palace of Versailles, a mesmerizing spatial intervention. In this solo show, which spans Eliasson’s work of 25 years, sculptures, paintings, photography, film, and more are on display. Themes include the human and nonhuman, nature, culture, and societal conditioning. —E.C.
