Latest Turbine Hall Project Unveiled

The latest artist to be offered the opportunity of exploiting the vast cavernous space of Tate Modern's 'Turbine Hall', Tacita Dean, opens her exhibit tonight.

'Film' transforms the east wall of the Turbine Hall into a giant strip of film, complete with sprocket holes, and celebrates what Dean describes as a 'dying media'. The Turbine Hall will be only dimly lit, allowing viewers to be immersed in the images on the giant screen - a snail on a leaf; a fountain; a chimney giving off vapour.

Read a full report on the new exhibit on the Guardian website, here, and its 5* review from Adrian Searle here.
