Tate Britain Commissions 2008–2017

Launch Slideshow

Since 2008 Sotheby’s has supported the Tate Britain Commission, an annual exhibition that invites a leading contemporary artist to create a new large-scale work in response to the grand space of the Duveen Galleries at the heart of Tate Britain. This year’s commission is Forms in Space… by Light (in Time), a major new light installation by Cerith Wyn Evans. The sculpture is made from almost 2km of neon lighting, suspended from the ceiling and configured into straight lines, sweeping curves and spiralling forms.  Click ahead to find out more about this year’s installation and to see the previous major works that Sotheby’s has supported.
