German-born, international in outlook and shown around the world, Wolfgang Tillmans will be exhibiting, for the first time in the artist’s career, in Tate Modern in London.

The first photographer ever to win the Turner Prize, back in the year 2000, Wolfgang Tillmans pushes the boundaries of the photographic form in abstract artworks that range from the sculptural to the immersive. His early images drew on rave culture, and his more recent projects show his ongoing interest in dance music.

Tate exhibition, Wolfgang Tillmans, will bring together works in an exciting variety of media – photographs, video, digital slide projections, publications, curatorial projects and recorded music – all staged by the artist in characteristically innovative style.

The exhibition will be on show in the main building from 15 February to 11 June, and in March, Tillmans will take over the South Tank for 10 days with a specially commissioned installation featuring live music and events.
