Generally reserved for up-and-coming artists, MIT’s annual Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts
was recently granted to veteran artist Olafur Eliasson for
2014. Known for his 2003 Tate Turbine Hall Installation and 2008 New
York City Waterfalls, the Danish-Icelandic artist excels in
large-scale public works. Phaidon digs deeper into how Eliasson will
use his creativity to collaborate with the renowned academic institution during
his brief residency next March.
