About

The Tanks are the world’s first museum space dedicated permanently to live art, installation and performance. They will open on 18 July and will be filled this summer and autumn with a 15-week festival of art. The Tanks will showcase a new installation by Sung Hwan Kim, one of the key artists of his generation working in an interdisciplinary way with video and performance art. Drawing on a rich history of performance and film, inspired and taught by artists such as Joan Jonas, alongside cultural influences from Korea, his work is a unique form of story-telling.
