New display at Tate Modern brings together a selection of Phyllida Barlow’s works

ARTIST ROOMS: Phyllida Barlow, the latest in this series of free displays at Tate Modern, opened to the public this week. It brings together a selection of Barlow’s celebrated large-scale sculptures as well as over 30 works on paper made across her sixty-year career.

These interrupt the exhibition space, encouraging visitors to discover hidden details and unexpected viewpoints as they navigate their way around each construction. Devised in close collaboration with the artist, Tate Modern’s new display brings together Barlow’s sculptures, installations and drawings. Highlights include Object for the telev
