Philanthropist and art collector Francesca von Habsburg’s Vienna-based foundation, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, (TBA21) is planning a long-term “Oceans Pavilion” in Venice.
TBA21 has announced that Olafur Eliasson’s Green light – an artistic workshop will be presented at Art Basel on June 18th and 19th within Zome Alloy, an architectural structure by Los Angeles-based artist Oscar Tuazon.
At FAD we love art that crosses cultural boundaries, art that tries to instigate debate, art that tries to make a difference and not least art created by artists who are aware of and interested in the world outside of art. Olafur Eliasson is such an artist; interested in renewable energy, sustainability, ways of working and living and above all, ways of making the world work better and with his studio team in Berlin, he produces projects that he wants to improve the world.
Opening Friday, November 20th 7 pm, at The Winter Palace of Prince Eugene of Savoy
