Your black horizon Art Pavilion is an interdisciplinary project by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect David Adjaye, commissioned by Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, in which the fields of art and architecture are merged into an “interlocking equation”, wherein ephemeral visual appearance and architectural formulations exist simultaneously. Inaugurated in June 2005 as an official project at the 51st Bienniale di Venezia, the pavilion has moved to the island of Lopud in Croatia in 2007, where it found an (im)permanent home. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary on of the iconic artwork on Lopud.

Die von Stefanie Hessler kuratierte Ausstellung zeigt neben herausragenden Arbeiten aus der TBA21 Sammlung neun neu kommissionierte Arbeiten, von denen viele im Rahmen von Expeditionen der TBA21–Academy im Pazifik entstanden sind.
