From March 20 to 29, the annual BMW Tate Live Exhibition, realised through the long-term partnership between Tate Modern and BMW, goes into its fourth edition.
This year’s programme features Faustin Linyekula, Okwui Okpokwasili and Tanya Lukin Linklater, who will come together to create ten days of live performances and site-specific installations for Tate Modern’s atmospheric underground Tanks. The artists, who draw on their individual cultural heritages, each use the body in different ways to explore history, inheritance and storytelling. BMW Tate Live Exhibition 2020 is curated by Catherine Wood and Tamsin Hong and produced by Judith Bowdler.
Visitors can freely explore the exhibition during gallery hours or attend ticketed evening performances. The programme will also be accompanied by live events and collaborative workshops.
BMW Tate Live Exhibition 2020 will be the fourth edition of this experimental annual exhibition, following Anne Imhof’s sell-out performances last year as well as the success of the first two exhibitions 2017 and 2018. These groundbreaking programmes pioneered a new model for the exhibition format with an ever-changing series of installations and live performances across ten days. Taking place in the Tanks, the world’s first museum spaces dedicated to performance, film and installation, the BMW Tate Live Exhibitions have showcased a wide range of artists including Joan Jonas, Fujiko Nakaya, Isabel Lewis, Jason Moran, Min Tanaka, Jumana Emil Abboud, Wu Tsang and Fred Moten.
