Exhibition: Olafur Eliasson

Olafur Eliasson In Real Life, Tate Modern, 11 July 2019 – 5 Jan 2020

We loved the Olafur Eliasson exhibition at the Tate Modern! This wonderful child-friendly exploration of colour heightens your senses as you pass through an immersive environment – for example, as you walk through a corridor of fog, which changes from warm reds to cool blues, or as you stand under a huge kaleidoscope of colour!

The thought-provoking exhibition is interactive for children, bringing nature and art together in a way which makes us question the world we are living in. For warmer weather, the large fountain construction outside is perfect for running around and getting wet!

Eliasson’s glowing sun, The weather project, in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall drew more than two million people to the gallery in 2003, You may also remember his Ice Watch in 2014 and 2018, exhibited at Bankside outside the Tate Modern. The ‘In Real Life’ exhibition similarly reinforces Eliasson’s attention to sustainability and the potential of art to inspire change.

We love the idea that if you bring an old T-shirt to the museum for reuse or recycling, you can get a 20% discount on an Olafur Eliasson exhibition T-shirt!
