This year’s annual live exhibition celebrates the work and influence of Joan Jonas, a pioneer of performance art. Ten Days Six Nights 2018 features performances by Jonas together with the renowned jazz pianist and composer Jason Moran; Chilean-American artist Sylvia Pallacios Whitman and Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey.
Explore free daytime installations in the Tanks including Jonas’s spellbinding installation Reanimation; two early sculptural works by Jonas and a new work by Jumana Emil Abboud drawing on Palestinian folklore and fairy tales.
In addition to a ticketed night programme, you can watch free performances of Jonas’s Mirror Piece II. At low tide the exhibition extends outside for a new version of Jonas’s performance Delay Delay, an outdoor ritual performed on the shore of the River Thames.
The live exhibition demonstrates the lasting legacy of Jonas’s work and its powerful impact on contemporary artists today.
Daytime installations and performances are free. Tickets for the six night performances will be available to book from January.
