Hyundai Commission: Philippe Parreno
About the Film
Hyundai Motor and Tate Modern’s long term partnership project [Hyundai Commission] has launched its second exhibition with French artist Philippe Parreno. His exhibition Anywhen , an installation that fills up Turbine Hall with sounds, films, movements, lights and many other elements, carries the idea of time and the essence of experiences. What story did Parreno want to tell with the word “Anywhen”? Why can people hardly leave his exhibition at the Turbine Hall? “We don’t to know what is happening here, but we have to trust that something is happening” says the artist and presents a constantly changing and developing “new future” through his mesmerizing installation work.
In 2014, Hyundai Motor and Tate announced an unprecedented 11-year partnership, marking the most extensive collaboration in the museum’s history. Our commitment began with the support of the acquisition of nine works by the Korean artist Nam June Paik. In 2015, we launched the Hyundai Commission, an annual series of site-specific installations by international artists in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall whose interpretation of the space has revolutionized public perceptions of contemporary art. Our partnership expanded in 2019 with the Hyundai Tate Research Centre: Transnational, a global research initiative focusing on global exchanges of artists and their ideas, with a vision to offer new perspectives on global art histories by highlighting exchanges beyond countries of origin. Our partnership with Tate is founded around the shared commitment towards providing global audiences new ways to access, understand, and experience art.
