The Tanks: Art in Action
18 July – 28 October 2012
Tate Modern is celebrating the opening of its inspiring new exhibition space with a fifteen-week festival of performance art and events.
The interiors of these converted Bankside oil tanks form the backdrop to a sensational series of events and performance art. Art in Action features works as diverse as Suzanne Lacy’s Crystal Quilt - a multimedia exploration of the role of older women in society - and Fase, a contemporary dance piece by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker set to the music of Steve Reich.
