28 March–20 August 2017
Cerith Wyn Evans has been commissioned by Tate to create a major new light installation for Tate Britain. The annual commission invites a contemporary British artist to create an artwork in response to the space of the Duveen Galleries at the heart of Tate Britain.
Alex Farquharson, Director, Tate Britain, said: ‘We are delighted that Cerith Wyn Evans will undertake the next commission for the Duveen Galleries. Cerith has made a unique contribution to British and international art for over two decades. His ability to create compelling structures out of light on a challenging scale, and the rich world of poetic ideas that informs his projects, makes him the perfect choice for the Tate Britain commission. We are excited to see how he will transform the Duveen Galleries this spring and summer.’
Tate Britain Commission 2017: Cerith Wyn Evans is curated by Clarrie Wallis, Senior Curator of Contemporary British Art, Tate, and Elsa Coustou, Assistant Curator of Contemporary British Art, Tate.
