Since Tate Modern opened in 2000, the Turbine Hall has hostedsome of the world's most memorable and acclaimed works ofcontemporary art, reaching an audience of millions.
The way artistshave interpreted this vast industrial space has revolutionised publicperceptions of contemporary art in the twenty-first century.

In 2018 the Hyundai Commission will be undertaken by a Cubaninstallation and performance artist, Tania Bruguera (b.1968), who isworld-renowned for her complex and absorbing performance pieces. Bruguera's work often pivots around issues of authority, powerand control, and several of her past works have interrogatedand re-presented events in Cuban history.
For this new installationBruguera will be exploring the vitally contemporary issue ofimmigration and examining how that expands into notions ofcommunity and `the neighbourly'.
