This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features one of Europe’s best-known and most-admired artists: Olafur Eliasson.
An exhibition of Eliasson’s newest photographs — featuring his ancestral homeland of Iceland — opens next week at Chelsea’s Tanya Bonakdar Gallery. Also, Taschen has just published a new edition of “Studio Olafur Eliasson,” a 532-page ‘encylopedia’ of Eliasson’s studio practice. (It’s available on Amazon for $25, a 40 percent discount.)
This is Eliasson’s New York City Waterfalls (2008), which Eliasson made in collaboration with the Public Art Fund. This is the waterfall installed under the Brooklyn Bridge. For more on the project, visit the Public Art Fund’s website.
