Tate examines the increasingly blurred borders between painting and performance, hot on the heels of the opening of the new performance space, Tate Tanks.

In the 1950s artists such as Pollock brought gesture to the fore, and the Viennese Actionists rejected the whole notion of art objects in favour of theatrical events. More recently, artists such as Cindy Sherman have used their bodies as subjects. Tate’s show looks at their work as well as that of younger artists inspired by the idea of action and the stage.
