Abracadabra – Tate Britain

Tate Britain

'Abracadabra' set out to define a new spirit in contemporary art. A 'common ground' for visitors and the art works, was created by stripping out the existing partition walls of the gallery. A fitted carpet was laid that allowed for sitting on the floor to watch the numerous video installations. The exhibition was curated by Catherine Grenier and Catherine Kinley.


"A huge success with the public, due in large part to your imagination in developing the installation for the show"

Sir Nicholas Serota
Director of Tate


"The entire gallery has been converted into a playground where visitors are encouraged to run riot"
