28 Dec One Two Three Swing!
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. The way artists have interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionised public perceptions of contemporary art in the twenty-first century. The annual Hyundai Commission gives artists an opportunity to create new work for this unique context. It is made possible by the long-term partnership between Tate and Hyundai Motor, confirmed until 2025 as part of the longest initial commitment from a corporate sponsor in Tate’s history.
Honestly unaware of what was awaiting us, we went to Tate Modern yesterday to see the Modigliani exhibition. Welcomed with a large-scale interactive installation by Danish collective SUPERFLEX. One Two Three Swing! is the first Turbine Hall commission to extend beyond the gallery walls. An orange line connecting dozens of three-seated swings weaves through the Turbine Hall, emerging onto the landscape outside Tate Modern where it will activate the space and continue to extend over time. Conceived as an assembly line for collective movement, the work invites audiences to combat social apathy through collaborative action, joining together on the count of three – One Two Three Swing!
So much love, inspiration and fun is in the air at Tate Modern at the moment – as always. One Two Three Swing! is free and it is on until the 2nd April 2018.
