Exhibition – Take Your Time: Olafur Eliasson

September 11, 2009

Showing at the MCA, this is the first full-scale exhibition of Eliasson’s work to be shown in Australia.

Olafur Eliasson is among the most influential and widely acclaimed artists of his generation. From light-filled environments to walk-in kaleidoscopes, his unique participatory works offer alluring spaces that harness optical cognition and meteorological elements, examine the intersection of nature and science, and explore the boundary between the organic and the artificial.

‘Take your time: Olafur Eliasson’ is the first full-scale survey of projects by this contemporary Danish artist to have been presented in Australia. The exhibition gathers works from major public and private collections worldwide and spans Eliasson’s diverse range of artistic production from 1993 to the present, including installations, large-scale immersive environments, freestanding sculpture, and photography.

‘Take your time: Olafur Eliasson’ has been organised by the San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art and curated by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Pritzker Director, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago in close collaboration with the artist.
