Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña will create an exciting new artwork for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall
Known for her radical textile sculptures which combine natural materials with traditional crafts, Cecilia Vicuña frequently explores themes of ecology, community, and social justice in her work. Through her art she pays tribute to her country’s Indigenous history and culture.
Since Tate Modern opened in 2000, the Turbine Hall has hosted some of the world’s most memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art, reaching an audience of millions each year. The annual Hyundai Commission gives artists an opportunity to create new work for this unique context.
