London’s Tate Modern literally glows with an outstanding installation by Olafur Eliasson. “The Weather Project” in the Turbine Hall through March 21 is best experienced lying down and worshiping the golden orb above.

Also at Tate Modern (but only for a few more days) is Sigmar Polke’s “History of Everything”. Organized by the Dallas Museum of Art, this fascinating look into Polke’s output of the last six years is beautifully complemented by three galleries of seminal works from the 60s through the 80s. Polke does not disappoint with his adventurous combinations of pattern, material and content.
