Abracadabra – Tate Britain

Tate Britain

Abracadabra, curated by Catherine Grenier and Catherine Kinley, 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.

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