Oliver Beer

Oliver Beer (b.1985) is a British artist and musician. Interested in the relationship between sound, space, voice and architecture, Beer creates sculptural, installation and film projects.

Oliver Beer's work has been the subject of many screenings as well as solo and group exhibitions, notably at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, United Kingdom; the Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Vuitton and Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; and the Hebbel Theater, Berlin, Germany. Beer has also held residencies at the Palais de Tokyo, the Watermill Foundation and the Fondation Hermès.

In 2017, Art of Wishes commissioned Beer to create a work inspired by eighteen-year-old wish child Tamir. Suffering from a brain tumour, Tamir’s wish was to own a viola and play with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra. Beer created and donated, alongside Thaddaeus Ropac, 'Beautiful Continuity' (2017) to Art of Wishes.
