Artist and director Steve McQueen first collaborated with Artangel on Carib's Leap/Western Deep, an immersive cinematic installation which premiered at Documenta X in Kassel and in an underground space in London in 2002.
Later in 2016, McQueen installed a new sculpture Weight in a cell in the empty Reading Prison as part of Artangel's project, Inside.
The collaboration has continued with Year 3 which began in 2018.
Steve McQueen is perhaps best known for his feature films Hunger, Shame, 12 Years a Slave, and Widows. These movies are just one element of a wide-ranging body of work in film and video which has seen McQueen win the Turner Prize in 1999, the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008 and an Oscar for best director in 2014.
A major survey of Steve McQueen's work is presented at Tate Modern from 13 February - 11 May 2020.
