Tate Modern and Hyundai Motor today announced that Anicka Yi will create the next annual Hyundai Commission. Her new site-specific work for the Turbine Hall will be open to the public from 6 October 2020 to 10 January 2021.
Anicka Yi explores the links between art and science. While drawing from the research of philosophers who are concerned with emerging forms of life and intelligence, her work also addresses present day questions around migration, class and gender. She is known for the way her works activate different senses and for experimenting with unorthodox materials that have ranged from tempura batter to kombucha leather.
Hyundai Commission 2020 will be curated by Mark Godfrey, Senior Curator, Petra Schmidt, Production Manager, and Carly Whitefield, Assistant Curator. It will be accompanied by a new book from Tate Publishing.
