The third Hyundai Commission transforms the Tate's Turbine Hall

The Tate's Turbine Hall is transformed once again in the major series of annual commissions by renowned international artists. In October 2017, the Hyundai Commission will be undertaken by SUPERFLEX, known for their interests in unifying urban spaces and commenting on society with authenticity through art.  

Migration, alternative energy and the power of global capital are just some of the motives behind the highly engaging, visual and often humorous work of Danish collective SUPERFLEX. They are best known for their playfully subversive installations and films.

Referring to their works as tools, the collective engage alternative models for the creation of social and economic organisation. 

SUPERFLEX is based in Copenhagen and was founded in 1993 by Danish artists and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, Jakob Fenger and Rasmus Nielsen. They have gained international recognition for their projects and solo exhibitions around the world and are represented in several public art institutions, such as MoMA, New York; Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark; FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais; and Coleccion Jumex, Mexico City.

The inaugural Hyundai Commission (Oct 2015 – Apr 2016) for the Turbine Hall was by Abraham Cruzvillegas, an artist known for creating sculptures by improvising with different materials. The second Hyundai Commission (from Octber 2016 till April 2, 2017) by Philippe Parreno called "Anywhen" transformed The Turbine Hall into an "immersive experience, challenging your perception of time and space".
