Three film artists show their work in the oil tanks beneath Tate Modern.



Coined in the mid-1960s by US filmmaker Stan VanDerBeek, but with its origins in the experiments of early twentieth century avant-garde film and performance art, ‘Expanded Cinema’ refers to film and video works that expand the traditional one-way relationship between audience and screen to incorporate the context they’re being watched in. This film, made in Tate Modern’s oil tanks during the Expanded Cinema event in April 2009, includes works by Steve Farrer, Tamara Krikorian, and Lis Rhodes.
