Tate Modern iPad app celebrates 13 years of the Unilever Turbine Hall installations
The most recently released Tate app, The Unilever Series at Tate Modern was produced by Cogapp and is available from the Apple App Store at an introductory price of £4.99.
LONDON.- Produced to celebrate 13 years of The Unilever Series at Tate Modern, one of the most innovative and significant contemporary art series of recent years. For the very first time, Tate has brought together all the artworks into one publication in this elegant app, from Olafur Eliasson’s sun to Ai Weiwei’s carpet of sunflower seeds. Explore early sketches and inspiration for many of the artworks, read illuminating essays by curators and interviews and texts by the artists, or simply enjoy the stunning installation photography.

The Unilever Series was launched in 2000 when Tate Modern opened with Louise Bourgeois’s I Do, I Undo, I Redo. The Spanish artist Juan Muñoz was the second artist commissioned in 2001 with Double Bind, and the first British artist was Anish Kapoor with Marsyas in 2002. Olafur Eliasson’s sun illuminated the Turbine Hall with The Weather Project in 2003 and Bruce Nauman’s mesmerising sound installation Raw Materials opened in October 2004. In 2005 Rachel Whiteread created her installation EMBANKMENT, followed by Carsten Höller’s interactive spiralling slides Test Site in 2006. In 2007 Doris Salcedo’s Shibboleth dramatically cracked open the floor of the Turbine Hall, while Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster’s TH.2058 transformed the Turbine Hall into a futuristic shelter in 2008. Miroslaw Balka created the eerie How It Is in 2009, a vast steel chamber with a pitch-black interior, and in 2010 Ai Weiwei created Sunflower Seeds, a landscape of over 100 million hand-made porcelain replicas of seeds. In 2011 Tacita Dean’s FILM, an 11-minute silent 35mm film was projected onto a gigantic white monolith and in 2012 Tino Sehgal’s work will open as the final piece in this long-running and successful series.

The most recently released Tate app, The Unilever Series at Tate Modern was produced by Cogapp and is available from the Apple App Store at an introductory price of £4.99. The app collates photography, text and video produced by Tate over the last 13 years in a comprehensive look at the entire series.
