Encounter Olafur Eliasson, the environmentally concerned artist who brought icebergs to Paris. The Danish-Icelandic artist doesn’t limit himself to the confines of museums or galleries but engages the public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space. His diverse works—in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations—have been exhibited around the world, from The Weather Project at Tate Modern to The New York City Waterfalls on NYC shorelines to Ice Watch, in which he installed a circle of icebergs in Paris during the 2015 conference on climate change. His Studio Olafur Eliasson, a laboratory for spatial research, encompasses some ninety craftsmen, technicians, architects, archivists, administrators, programmers, art historians, and cooks. In an illuminating evening, Eliasson will reflect on his art and the broad questions his works consider regarding emotion, physicality, and the future of our world.
