LONDON, November 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Tate and BMW today announced that an annual live exhibition will be staged in Tate Modern's unique underground Tanks. It will open in spring 2017 as part of the ongoing BMW Tate Live programme. This announcement marks a new departure in the concept of the art exhibition: visitors will be invited to explore the show as it unfolds over time. This new format will combine installation, performance, film, video, sound and talks from 24 March to 2 April 2017 and will also extend outside to the new Terrace above the Tanks.
The installations for Ten Days Six Nights will range from a plant-filled salon to a cloud of artificial mist and will be free to visit during the day. In the evening, they will be further animated with ticketed performances.
Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions, Tate Modern: "Our culture is always changing, and so exhibitions must change too. In our connected digital age, artists and audiences are ever more fascinated by live experiences shared in the moment. Our new annual BMW Tate Live Exhibition reflects this shift."
Featured artists will include Fujiko Nakaya (b.1933, Japan), Isabel Lewis (b.1981, Dominican Republic), CAMP (a collaborative studio founded in Mumbai in 2007), Wu Tsang (b.1982, USA) and Fred Moten (b.1962, USA), alongside Carlos Casas, Ian Cheng, Lygia Lewis, Phill Niblock, Daïchi Saïto and Lorenzo Senni.
The BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights is curated by Catherine Wood, Senior Curator of International Art (Performance) and Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator of International Art (Film) with Isabella Maidment, Assistant Curator of Performance and Carly Whitefield, Assistant Curator of Film.
