BMW Tate Live Exhibition: 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.
Ten Inspiring Days
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.
Isabel Lewis is in residence throughout the duration of the exhibition hosting a number of her signature occasions, combining music, food, drink and perfume to create an alternative environment for dance, discussions and invited musicians.
CAMP, a collaborative studio founded in Mumbai in 2007, use the Transformer Galleries and the East Tank as a space to share Could Have Beens, a selection of rarely-seen installations each reworking systems of electricity and imaging to propose alternate socio-tecnological scenarios.
Wu Tsang and Fred Moten present Gravitational Feel, a sculptural performance using fabric and sound to explore the social and physical significance of touch and voice. Installations by Carlos Casas, Phill Niblock, and Lorenzo Senni exist as site-specific environments open to the public by day.
Fujiko Nakaya will transform the South Terrace for the first time with an immersive fog sculpture, animated 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.
Six unmissable nights
The daytime installations act as springboards for six nights of ticketed live performances. You can browse the full programme for each night below and book tickets online. The live nights will showcase both established and emerging artists working across performance, film, sound and dance.
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.
