Don't miss the highly anticipated Tate Britain Commission 2015, as Christina Mackie takes over a space with her singular artistic vision.

This annual event sees a leading artist selected to react and respond to the works already hanging in the gallery, coming up with a distinctive creation of their own that reflects their feelings about the space.

This year's candidate, Christina Mackie, was born in 1956 and is known for her interest in and use of pigments and the application of colour. Unveiling the new works, it is expected that her enthusiasm for complex installations that combine natural aspects with manufactured pieces are likely to be the dominant theme. Many of her previous works have attempted to create a balance between these elements, arranging them in such a way that they counter each other in both a physical and compositional sense.

With creations that are always surprising and thoughtful, her response to Tate's collection of British and international art is an intriguing prospect.
