Tate Modern’s innovative live exhibition returns for ten days and six nights of free and ticketed performances and installations

This year’s annual live exhibition celebrates the work and influence of Joan Jonas, a pioneer of performance, video and installation. Jonas has been instrumental in shaping these art forms over the last five decades. To demonstrate her lasting legacy and powerful impact on contemporary artists today, Jonas’s work is presented in dialogue with an intergenerational selection of artists over ten day and six nights.

The six night programme features performances by Jonas, the celebrated jazz pianist and composer Jason Moran; Chilean-American artist Sylvia Palacios Whitman; Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey and London-based duo patten

Explore free daytime installations in the Tanks including Jonas’s masterpiece Reanimation 2010/12/13; Cones/May Windows (After Mirage) 1976; Stage Sets 1977, alongside a new commission by Jumana Emil Abboud, A Happy Ending III (Tate Tales) 2018 that draws on Palestinian folklore and fairy tales.

Free daytime performances of Jonas’s ground-breaking work Mirror Piece II 1970 will take place in the South Tank. Meanwhile at low tide the exhibition extends outside for Jonas’s performance Delay Delay (London Version) 2018, an outdoor ritual performed on the shore of the River Thames.


BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights is curated by Catherine Wood, Senior Curator of International Art (Performance), Isabella Maidment, Assistant Curator, Performance and Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator of International Art (Film).
