Light and Dark Matters: Sunset walk and talk with artist Susan Schuppli

21 November, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

£15

Artist Susan Schuppli leads a walk in Tate Modern’s surrounding area reflecting on the materiality of sunsets and the politics of light. Why is the sun now setting further west in the arctic regions? How do atmospheric pollutants supercharge the colours of our sunsets? When the sun goes down our AM radio reception fade and distorts – why does this happen? The walk begins at 15.30 in the Turbine Hall commission by Abraham Cruzvillegas, which explores art, ecology, environment and light and ends in the East Room with panoramic views of London’s illuminated skyline.

Over twenty four hours at Tate Modern leading artists, scientists, philosophers, theorists and the public come together to debate, share and uncover our contemporary experience of light, dark and dark matter. What are the many forms of light and dark that surround us? How do we harness this energy and what do we imagine for the future? Explore these questions and more through sunrise and sunset walks, talks & discussions and collaborative workshops.

Part of the International Year of Light in collaboration with the Institute of Physics
