Tells the story behind the latest major new work in a series that has transformed perceptions of contemporary art 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 each year. The way artists have interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionised public awareness of contemporary art. The annual Hyundai Commission gives artists an opportunity to create new work for this unique context.
For the 2021 Hyundai Commission, Anicka Yi will create her largest and most ambitious project to date. Born in South Korea and now living and working in New York, Yi is a conceptual artist known for installations that engage the senses, especially the sense of smell, and for her collaborations with biologists and chemists. In previous artworks she has used an astonishing array of materials and scents to explore questions of technology, identity and labour. Her work draws from the research of philosophers who are concerned with emerging forms of life and intelligence, while also addressing questions around migration, class and gender.
Made in collaboration with the artist, the publication includes an enlightening interview about the commission, a section in which Yi poses intriguing questions to leading thinkers and experts from the many fields that have influenced her thinking, and a specially commissioned short story by writer Elvia Wilk. This is the latest volume in a major series that explores the conception and creation of each commission as well as offering an overview of in the artist's work and career leading up to the latest ground-breaking installation.

Gerhard Richter (né en 1932) est unanimement considéré comme l'un des plus importants peintres encore en activité et a exposé dans les plus grandes institutions du monde.
Connu tant pour ses tableaux figuratifs inspirés de la photographie que pour ses peintures abstraites, Richter associe de manière inédite des éléments empruntés à ses deux champs artistiques.

A beautifully produced, comprehensive examination of acclaimed American artist Sarah Sze's painting practice.
Since the late 1990s, has developed a signature visual language that challenges the static nature of art with a dynamic body of work spanning sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, video and installation. In recent years, Sze has returned to painting, the medium in which she was first trained. Comprising constellations of painted and collaged elements, her expansive abstract landscapes explore a visual world that is constantly evolving, degrading, and generating new ways of seeing. This book, created in close collaboration with Sze, features 150 works, most never before published, and is the first monograph devoted to her painting practice.
In Quarles' paintings, limbs, torsos and faces collide and merge with familiar domestic objects made strange through color and gesture Los Angeles-based artist Christina Quarles (born 1985) paints bodies that are subjected not only to the weight and gravity of the physical world but also to the pleasures and pressures of the social realm. Her work explores the universal experience of existing within a body, as well as the ways race, gender and sexuality intersect to form complex identities. Quarles, whose art is often considered in relation to her identity as a queer, cisgender woman of mixed race, is among the vanguard of artists who are upending the white-male-dominated art scene. This book features paintings and drawings from throughout Quarles' career. Working mostly in acrylic, Quarles populates her canvases with polymorphous figures that reference her background in life drawing, but with an expressionist spin all her own. Her figures' disconnected arms and legs break through a surface punctuated with bold patterns, textures and staccato markings.
A maverick figure in New York's downtown scene, Humphries has revitalized the language of abstract painting over a career that has covered four decades and multiple transformations in style.
Published on the occasion of Jacqueline Humphries' (born 1960) new exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts, this major catalog surveys the artist's work from the past seven years, including dozens of new paintings and her largest multipanel installations to date.
Incorporating the QWERTY keyboard as a means of generating abstract forms, Humphries' recent paintings integrate emoticons, emoji, CAPTCHAs and ASCII text as layers of mark-making in dense and vivid works. Other new works explore the visual language of corporate logos; black light paintings presented in darkened space; and a selection of protest sign paintings that invoke the uprisings that shape our current political landscape.
The title is a CAPTCHA code invented by Humphries that brings together her initials, the last Greek letter in its alphabet, omega, which she uses to refer to the idea of the "end" of painting and her continuing refusal of this end, the number 1, which stands for the idea of a beginning, and her favorite emoticon: ). The book features essays by exhibition curator Mark Godfrey, Courtney J. Martin, Jenny Nachtigall and former Wexner Center Director Johanna Burton. Designed by Studio Markus Weisbeck, this extensively illustrated monograph offers an up-close view of Humphries' continued evolution in painting.
