The Tanks at Tate Modern
泰特現代藝術館的 “大油罐”

18.07.2012 – 28.10.2012

The Tanks at Tate Modern are the world’s first museum galleries permanently dedicated to exhibiting live art, performance, installation and film works.

 The Tanks were originally massive industrial chambers containing oil that fuelled the Bankside power station and have lain unused since it was decommissioned in 1981. The cavernous underground oil tanks have undergone extensive redevelopment and are once again working components of a larger building. No longer generators of electrical energy, they are instead generators of ideas, creative energy and new possibilities for artist and audiences. Neither white cube, nor black box, they provide an entirely new type of space for Tate Modern and for museums internationally. Part of the Tate Modern Project, The Tanks opened on 18 July 2012 with a 15-week festival programme of international performance, films, talks and live events.

Selected upcoming events and performances include choreographer and dancer Boris Charmantz’s Flip Book. Taking David Vaughan’s 1997 book Fifty Years, which charts in pictures Merce Cunningham’s choreography over 50 years. Charmatz invited different groups of dancers – from ex-members of Cunningham’s company to amateur practitioners – to learn and perform Vaughan’s images in Flip Book – through rehearsals and full performances. 25-30 September

Performance Year Zero: A Living History, screenings, talks, performance and discussion, explores how histories of action and event-based works have created a vocabulary passed between generations of artists that is distinct from the citation of references or sampling in much contemporary art. The recourse to art history is less about footnotes, drawn from a network of original sources and more about finding new ways of performing art history live, as evolving communicatory forms, akin to oral tradition. 30 September – 6 October.
