WOLFGANG TILLMANS AT TATE MODERN

Love (Hands in Air) (1989) by Wolfgang Tillmans

Photographer and artist, Wolfgang Tillmans, is to stage a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Tate Modern in February 2017.

With his saturated snapshots and lo-fi aesthetic, Tillmans work over the past 14 years has predominantly focused on his engagement with political issues, from climate change and gay rights to the refugee crisis.
The exhibition at Tate will begin from his archive back in 2003 (the last time he exhibited there, just three years after he won the Turner Prize), and feature his photography, video, publication, curatorial projects and work in music - Tillmans first grew to appreciate photography via the pictures on record sleeves, and also installed a listening room with a hi-fi and a selection of CDs, at his Berlin gallery Between Bridges in 2014 - his vision was to offer an open space for dialogue and elevate pop music to the same status as fine art.

The exhibition at Tate will also include a ten day takeover of the South Tank in the new Switch House. For more info head HERE.
