Tate Modern

Pipilotti Rist for Tate Modern?

Overheard conversations suggest the Turbine Hall may be seeing this artist sooner rather than later...

So blissed-out was Miami über-collector Mera Rubell at the Pipilotti Rist experience that she was to be heard on the Hauser & Wirth private jet ferrying collectors to the Paul McCarthy extravaganza in Munich (see p.4) enthusiastically persuading Tate Collections Director Jan Debbout that Rist was an obvious candidate for Tate Modern’s Turbine hall. Is London next in line for some good vibes à la Rist?

Appeared in Art Basel in Basel, June 2005
