Olafur Eliasson enables visitors of the National Gallery to create lamps together

The art workshop of the Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson creates a dynamic space in which we can join the community through shared learning and creating lamps. Green Light is meant as a metaphorical symbol for refugees and migrants searching for a better and more hopeful life.

The project Green Light is the first collaboration of the National Gallery with the Viennese museum Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21), which will be followed by an exhibition of the foundation’s collection in Salm Palace in June 2018.

You can visit the art workshop Green Light in the Trade Fair Palace, in the area above the bookshop, from 17th March until 2nd April 2017. The workshop was supported by The Pudil Family Foundation.
