Works by William Blake and ‘dazzling sun’ artist to go on show at Tate

Olafur Eliasson will showcase a large-scale exhibition as well as an outdoor work.

The artist who drew huge crowds by installing a “giant sun” at Tate Modern is returning to the venue.

Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson will showcase a large-scale exhibition, as well as an outdoor work, at the popular London gallery in July next year.

It will feature his creations more than 15 years after The Weather Project, a dazzling sun installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, was a striking success in 2003.

Other exhibitions announced for 2019 include the first William Blake exhibition for a generation, to take place at Tate Britain.

Highlights for 2019 also include French painter Pierre Bonnard: The Colour Of Memory, at Tate Modern and the UK’s first retrospective of artist and political activist Keith Haring at Tate Liverpool.
