Tate Modern to stay open until after midnight

London SE1 website team

The Tate Modern Weather Project, which has been visited by over two million people, is staying open late on Friday and Saturday evening 19 and 20 March.

The doors are to be open until midnight and are expected to close at 1am to enable last minute visitors to experience Olafur Eliasson's project. The exhibition finally closes at 6pm on Sunday 21 March.

The Weather Project by Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson is the fourth commission in The Unilever Series at the Tate. Taking our relationship with the weather as a starting point, he has used mirrors, light and mist to create an extraordinary sensory environment in the Turbine Hall.

At the far end of the Turbine Hall a large yellow arc of light is suspended and reflected in the mirrored ceiling, linking the real space and replicated expanse to create a ‘sun'.

Admission is free.
