London`s Tate Modern has opened its first ever space dedicated to live art, a move that could potentially help the institution to explore new areas of visual culture.
Known as The Tanks, it has been described as not a theatre, museum or gallery, but something completely different; making it a hugely exciting venture for art buffs and culture vultures staying in any of the London hotels
in the coming months. The unveiling is the first stage of the groundbreaking Tate Modern Project, a £215 million development that will eventually welcome a brand new building to its facilities, increasing its size by a whopping 60%.
Among the artists set to add to the debut exhibition of The Tanks is South Korean artist Sung Hwan Kim and choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, with the latter bringing an adaptation of her highly regarded 1982 performance ‘False: Four Movements of Steve Reich`. If you happen to be visiting the city, be sure to include a visit to The Tanks for an art exhibition like no other.
