Don't miss a unique live exchange combining piano with video projections and improvisational actions

BMW Tate Live Exhibition 2018 opens with two nights dedicated to the collaboration between Joan Jonas and the celebrated jazz pianist and composer Jason Moran.

The new duet at Tate Modern is the latest presentation of Jonas and Moran’s on-going collaboration and follows The Shape, the Scent, the Feel of Things (2005); Reading Dante (2007-10); Reanimation (2010-13), and They Come to Us without a Word, United States Pavilion, 56th Venice Biennale (2015). Jonas has said: ‘Working with Jason, it’s like jazz in a sense. It’s always similar and always slightly different.’

On display throughout the Ten Days Six Nights is Jonas’s Reanimation 2010/12/13: a mesmerizing installation scored by Moran presented in the East Tank. On view in the Transformer galleries are three important early works by Jonas: Cones/May Windows (After Mirage) 1976/2011; Stage Sets 1977, and the video Wind 1968. The Tanks foyer hosts a newly commissioned installation and performances by Jumana Emil Abboud that draw on Palestinian folklore and fairy tales.
