Launching at the Tate Modern later this month, Ten Days Six Nights, part of BMW Tate Live, is a unique performance art exhibition taking place on London’s Southbank, featuring works from the Fujiko Nakaya, Wu Tsang and Fred Moten, Isabel Lewis and many more.

Set in and around the unique, industrial space of The Tanks, Ten Days Six Nights takes on a wholly new personality from the rest of the Tate Modern museum. With a focus on live experiences, the exhibition creates a collaborative engagement between artist and viewer, each encounter different from the next.

The Southern Terrace is being taken over by Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya, with an immersive fog sculpture that will become the backdrop to numerous other performances throughout the exhibition. Meanwhile Isabel Lewis will be taking up residence in the Tanks Lobby, creating an alternative space for dance, musical performances and discussions through her use of food, drink, perfume and music.

Visitors can also explore the Transformer Galleries, which will feature a number of rarely-seen installations from CAMP, posing questions about the interaction between technology and people; and Wu Tsang and Fred Moten’s sculptural performance Gravitational Feel. In addition to these featured works, ticketed events run for six nights of performances across a range of mediums.

Moving away from static and traditional artwork, this thought-provoking and carefully curated exhibition unfolds throughout the ten days, offering each visitor a unique perspective on the works in front of them. Ten Days Six Nights will be running from the 24th March – 2nd April 2017 at the Tate Modern.
