Tate Britain Commission 2014: Phyllida Barlow Free

Overview

Attend one of the largest and most ambitious projects ever attempted by sculptor Phyllida Barlow as she unveils the Tate Britain Commission 2014.

The annual commission sees artists create work that responds to the collections and exhibitions at the venue, taking into account the British and international art as well as the grand spaces of the galleries.

For more than 40 years, Barlow has been creating imposing, larger-than-life installations. She is well-known for utilising every day, low-cost materials in her work, such as polystyrene, cement, cardboard and fabrics. Looking to contrast her style with the permanent elements of Tate Britain, Barlow draws on memories of familiar surroundings to create fleeting, unstable objects.

A recent work by Barlow, for the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh, saw mesh-covered timber lengths cascade across the museum plaza in what might be a clue as to her plans for Tate Britain.
