Ten Days Six Nights marks a new departure in the concept of the art exhibition: from a static presentation to an experience of art that unfolds through time. 

Situated in the Tanks, the first BMW Tate Live Exhibition brings together an intergenerational selection of artists that have been invited to stage their work as a space that extends a form of hospitality or community, to other artists and visitors alike. The artists create images of networks and forms of participation that link natural environment with social media, organic and technological, human and non-human. Ten Days Six Nights extends outside to the new South Terrace animating the landscape outside the Switch House for the first time.

Four newly commissioned works by Fujiko Nakaya, Isabel Lewis, CAMP, and Fred Moten and Wu Tsang exist as both free daytime installations and spring-boards for six unmissable evenings of ticketed live performances. Participating artists include Melanie Bonajo, Carlos Casas, Ian Cheng, Ligia Lewis, Paul Maheke, Phill Niblock, Emily Roysdon, Daïchi Saïto, Lorenzo Senni, Pepa Ubera and Josefina Camus, and Ian Wilson among others. 

Fujiko Nakaya, who first came to prominence through her collaboration with Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T) in the 1970s, will transform the South Terrace with an immersive fog sculpture. This installation will be animated each day by a light and soundscape made in collaboration with Nakaya’s historic collaborators: Ryuichi Sakamoto and Shiro Takatani; and host performances by renowned dancer and choreographer Min Tanaka.​

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, Performance and Carly Whitefield, Assistant Curator, Film.
