DESCRIPTION

Experience the gallery in a completely new way in a newly commissioned project by radical architect Claude Parent (b. 1923). 


Parent’s radical intervention transforms the Wolfson Gallery with slanted floors and ramps, providing the audience with an exciting opportunity to experience the museum anew as a gathering space in which to view a variety of work from Tate’s collection. This unconventional remodelling of the gallery space will provide a unique setting to view the artworks on display, including pieces by Gustav Metzger, Francis Picabia and Gillian Wise, among others, chosen to complement Parent’s passion for challenging conformity.

A prominent figure of the 1960s & 1970s French avant-garde, Parent’s installation follows the rules of Fonction Oblique, an architectural principle he founded together with writer Paul Virilio.
