|THE UNILEVER SERIES: AI WEIWEI |
12 OCTOBER – 2 MAY
Chinese artist and architect Ai Weiwei is in line for the 11th Unilever Series commission in Tate Modern’s imposing Turbine Hall. As usual the project is under wraps until its unveiling, so we can’t give you a sneak preview. Ai is known for works like the Beijing Olympic stadium (the Bird’s Nest) in collaboration with Herzog & de Meuron and the Fountain of Light sculpture (pictured), so we’re expecting something bombastic. The six-month long installation provides a platform of experimentation on an international scale and previous artists include Belgian Carsten Höller and Polish Miroslaw Balka. We are featuring Ai’s contribution to the Mexican architecture and pilgrim’s walk Ruta del Peregrino on page 131.

There’s a slew of big names attending this year, including Konstantin Grcic, Inga Sempé and Stefan Sagmeister, but remember to check out new talent like Mark Braun and Nicolas Le Moigne as well.
