Olafur Eliasson: “Take Your Time” Retrospective

In Denmark on September 19, 2009 at 11:21 pm

The famed Danish artist, whose past works like the New York City Waterfalls and Weather Project have been impressive exercises in space and environment, has put his “Take Your Time” collection on the road. Termed a “survey”, the exhibition covers the past 15 years of Eliasson’s work, and immerses the viewer in a sensory experience unlike any other.

The retrospective can currently be seen at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, and was recently shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and MoMA in New York.

George Grosz

The Berlin-born Grosz was a major player in the Weimar art scene, and is renowned today for his biting caricatures of German life in the 1920s and 30s. A member of the Communist Party, and fiercely anti-Nazi, he emigrated to the United States in 1932 just before Hitler’s rise to power.

His artwork can be seen at MoMA in New York City, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC, the Art Institute of Chicago, and many others.
