Cecilia Vicuña next Hyundai Commission in Tate Modern Turbine Hall

Lehmann Maupin announces that Cecilia Vicuña has been selected to create the next Hyundai Commission for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Opening in October, this site-specific installation will continue Tate Modern’s twenty-plus year legacy of showcasing memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art in their entranceway, drawing millions of museum goers annually.

“Cecilia Vicuña has been an inspirational figure for decades, with the relevance and urgency of her work rightly underscored by her forthcoming Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement award. As a tireless champion of ecological awareness and social justice, as well as the creator of stunning and powerful works of art, I am delighted that Tate Modern will be working with Cecilia Vicuña on our next annual Hyundai Commission - I can’t wait for its unveiling this October” - Frances Morris, Director, Tate Modern

The commission will further Vicuña’s decades-long practice exploring pressing issues of ecology, community and social justice. The Commission is curated by Catherine Wood, Senior Curator of International Art (Performance), Tate with Fiontan Moran, Assistant Curator, International Art, Tate, and will be accompanied by a new book from Tate Publishing.
