The Tate Modern has got a couple of new exhibition spaces, two massive concrete tanks which will be the first space dedicated to live performance, art and installation. I’m intrigued to see what this will involve, they look absolutely huge. The tanks were formerly used to hold oil when the Tate Modern used to be a power station until 1981
Artists to feature first are….
Sung Hwan Kim, not seen his stuff before but it involves music, light, sculpture and music. This sounds pretty cool, based on the size and scale of the tanks.
A minimalist dance performance by Anne Teresa Keersmaeker called Fase: Four Movements to the Music of Steve Reich, never really been one for dance but in these spaces it could be pretty epic.
Then there is Eddie Peake, he recently filmed a naked football game, now I like football and I like men, surely this is too good to be true. This time he is developing something new though… open to seeing that as well, nothing wrong with a bit of artistic flesh after all.
I also reckon this would be a great space for a massive techno party…. just my opinion though
