El Anatsui. Behind the Red Moon

Hyundai Commision

ISBN: 9781849768610 (PB - EN)

From histories of migration and African decolonisation to the evolution of human civilisation, El Anatsui's innovative work pushes the boundaries of sculpture. This lavish exhibition book accompanies his eagerly anticipated installation for the famed Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. One of the most distinctive artists working today, El Anatsui is best-known for his cascading metallic sculptures constructed of thousands of recycled bottle-tops articulated with copper wire. Repurposing found materials into dazzling works of abstract art, Anatsui's work explores themes that include the environment, consumption and trade. The book will be lavishly illustrated with photos of this new sculpture, while also serving as an introduction to the artist's life and work. Newly commissioned texts from a fascinating range of perspectives, along with a conversation between Anatsui and curator Osei Bonsu, are accompanied by images from the artist's studio. Since Tate Modern opened in 2000, the Turbine Hall has hosted some of the world's most memorable and acclaimed works of contemporary art, reaching an audience of millions each year. The annual Hyundai Commission gives artists an opportunity to create new work for this unique context.Osei Bonsu is Curator of International Art at Tate Modern, where he is responsible for organising exhibitions, developing the museum's collection and broadening the representation of artists from Africa and the African diaspora. Julian Lucas is Staff Writer at The New Yorker.
