Tate Modern has unveiled the first live commission in The Unilever Series – These associations, created by Anglo-German artist Tino Sehgal. Tino Sehgal has risen to prominence for his innovative works which consist purely of live encounters between people, including work at the 2005 Venice Biennale and solo shows at the Guggenheim and London’s ICA. Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall is inhabited by an assembly of participants whose choreographed actions use movement, sound, and conversation. The Turbine Hall is occupied by the physical and vocal energy of the participants and visitors. The Unilever Series: Tino Sehgal is open until 28 October 2012.
