There are many reasons why Olafur Eliasson is a pin-up artist of our time, alongside other architectural and spatially focused artists like James Turrell. The Danish-Icelandic artist has an interdisciplinary body of work, from the Rainbow Panorama walkway perched on top of ARoS in Aarhus, Denmark to Room for One Colour, not too long ago at London’s own National Gallery. He often constructs large-scale installations and immersive experiences with light, colour and elements like water, playing with perception and embodiment.

He’s got a new book out, and Olafur Eliasson: Experience is part of the Southbank Centre’s London Literature Festival, which runs from 18-28 Oct 2018.

On stage expect a walk through his career and (centrally) more about his approach to use art as a tool of change to squarely channel thinking into doing, and art into action. The Tate Modern’s Achim Borchardt-Hume will guide the conversation.

Inside Freak Scene’s crispy, hard taco, chunks of miso-lathered cod coalesce with chubby sushi rice and ruby red salsa. Go hungry.
