About

A focus on three of Joan Jonas's earliest ground-breaking performances: Mirror Check 1970, Mirror Piece II 1969 and Mirage 1976. For the BMW Tate Live Exhibition 2018, Jonas has returned to these formative works and reimagined each performance for the specific spaces of the Tanks. The logic of remaking is integral to Jonas's work. She describes each performance as 'situation'-specific, specific to the space and time in which it is shown. On display throughout Ten Days Six Nights is Jonas's Reanimation 2010/12/13 a mesmerizing installation scored by Jason Moran presented in the East Tank. On view in the Transformer galleries are three important early works by Jonas: Cones/May Windows (After Mirage) 1976/2011; Stage Sets 1977, and the video Wind 1968. The Tanks foyer hosts a newly commissioned installation and performances by Jumana Emil Abboud that draw on Palestinian folklore and fairy tales.
