Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Destined to become the authoritative text on Eliasson as well as a lasting resource on contemporary installation art.

In the work of Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson, the sun can rise inside a museum and rainbows can appear indoors. His immersive installations explore the intersection of nature and artifice, transforming ordinary spaces into sites of wonder and spectacle. From kaleidoscopes to waterfalls to mirrored passageways, the projects invite the viewer's active participation while posing provocative questions about the workings of human perception.

This catalogue is published in association with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and accompanies a major touring exhibition. More than two hundred color reproductions offer a rich visual survey of Eliasson's most significant works from 1990 to the present, while a series of original essays investigate the complex origins and implications of his practice, from the legacy of the Light and Space movement to the artist's recent forays into architectural design. 200+ color illustrations.
