The Tanks: Art in Action at Tate Modern, in London

the-tank.JPG

The Tanks at Tate Modern, the world’s first museum galleries dedicated permanently to live art, a 15-week festival exhibiting live art, performance, installation and film work. The space’s name is derived from its previous function – the chambers that form the exhibition space were oil tanks that have remained unused since the former power station was turned into an art gallery.

The immense space will be able to accommodate a range of ambitious performances and the best time to experience it is in the coming weeks. To celebrate its opening and the London 2012 Festival, a 15-week festival The Tanks: Art in Action will see a number of international performers appear in the vast, industrial space. Highlights include a commission by Korean artist Sung Hwan Kim and the on-site Undercurrent festival for young people, which showcases audio, digital media and performance drawn from local arts movements in London.
