Tate And Hyundai Motor Launch Research Center


Since 2013, Hyundai Motor has supported art initiatives worldwide, including programs and exhibitions at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea; Tate Modern; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It supported the Korean Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2015 and 2017, as well as the Biennale of Sydney in 2016 and 2018. In 2015, Hyundai Motor launched the annual Hyundai Commission, inviting artists such as Abraham Cruzvillegas, Philippe Parreno, Superflex and Tania Bruguera to create site-specific installations in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall.

The new Centre’s first symposium, “Axis of Solidarity: Landmarks, Platforms, Futures,” will explore the international solidarity movements that emerged in the Global South during processes of decolonization from the 1950s to the ’80s. The conference will be co-organized with the Institute for Comparative Modernities at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and the Africa Institute in Sharjah, and will be held at Tate Modern from February 23 to 25, 2019.
