Wolfgang Tillmans has earned recognition as one of the most exciting and innovative artists working today. This February, Tate Modern will present an exhibition concentrating on his production across different media since 2003. First rising to prominence in the 1990s for his photographs of everyday life and contemporary culture, Tillmans has gone on to work in an ever greater variety of media and has taken an increasingly innovative approach to staging exhibitions. Tate Modern will bring this variety to the fore, offering a new focus on his photographs, video, digital slide projections, publications, curatorial projects and recorded music.
Showcasing the importance of Tillmans’ interdisciplinary practice, the exhibition will particularly highlight the artist’s deeper engagement with abstraction and concentrates on his production across different media since 2003. Covering portraiture, landscape and still life, it will particularly highlight the artist’s deeper engagement with abstraction, beginning with his important work Sendeschluss / End of Broadcast I (2014).
