TateShots: Cildo Meireles

Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles at Tate Modern — the artist’s first UK retrospective. His work is characterised by a high degree of interactivity, as well as recurring motifs of barriers, fencing and mesh.

For a special event, Meireles invited members of the public to help create the latest version of his work Meshes of Freedom. He told us about the significance of the work and why art is not just for the eyes.
