Tate Modern has today unveiled two new underground oil tank spaces which will be used as a performance and debate space.
Know simply as the Tanks the spaces will open shortly before the Olympic Games kick off on 18th July and will run for 15 weeks of immersive art and performance. Described as the ‘world’s first museum space dedicated permanently to live art’ the Tanks
The 30-meter wide concreate spaces will show a variety of live art, film, performances, installations and also host a series of talks, debates and conferences with the ‘East Tank’ hosting a permanent exhibition by Korean artist, Sung Hwan Kim while what goes on inside the ‘South Tank’ will be ever changing.
As well as a dance project by choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker there will also be a piece made by Eddie Peake who earlier this year showed a film that involved naked men playing football.
All in all over 40 different types of artists will visit the Tanks to show off their work so make sure you keep an eye on the Tate Modern website for listings and information.
