Hyundai Commission: Philippe Parreno : Anywhen

The current exhibition at the Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, is an immersive experience, challenging your perception of time and space.
Hyundai Commission is a series of site-specific installations by contemporary artists which activate and stimulate your senses through a spectacular choreography of acoustics, sound lighting, flying objects and film, each connected to the other and playing their part in a far bigger score.
Anywhen is a site-specific exhibition that changes throughout the day and that will evolve during the six-month period of the commission.

Antony Gormley : Fit

White Cube presents ‘Fit’, a major new exhibition by Antony Gormley at Bermondsey.
For this exhibition, Gormley has configured the gallery space into 15 chambers to create a series of dramatic physiological encounters in the form of a labyrinth. Visitors are faced with a choice of passage through differently sized, uniquely lit spaces where each room challenges or qualifies the experience of the last.  
The exhibition makes reference to both the citizens of a city like London and the migrant seeking refuge. ‘Fit’ asks whether we as citizens identify with the forces that determine inclusion or exclusion from city or country.
30 September – 6 November 2016
