Mike Nelson will be the next artist to take on the Tate Britain Commission ​

The annual commission invites artists to make a work in response to the unique architecture and history of the Duveen Galleries at the heart of Tate Britain.

Mike Nelson has been nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2001, 2007) and has represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. He constructs large-scale, site-specific sculptural environments that often arise from a period of living and working in a particular location. His works fuse literary, filmic, sociopolitical and cultural references to create carefully orchestrated tableaux.

Artists who have previously undertaken the commission include Anthea Hamilton (2018), Cerith Wyn Evans (2017) and Pablo Bronstein (2016).
