BMW Tate Live Exhibition 2020

10:00am – 10:00pm

The 2021 lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but last year’s COVID-interrupted event celebrated the work and influence of three contemporary artists: Faustin Linyekula, Okwui Okpokwasili and Tanya Lukin Linklater. Expect theatre, music and dance, as well as installations in the Tate Modern’s “Tanks”.

While the artists are from radically different backgrounds, there are clear thematic throughlines. Each artist explores how histoy is held in the body, as well as shared memory and visibility in art. Everything is free to explore and enjoy during the day, with ticketed events taking place in evenings. Past years’ exhibitions have been well worth seeing—and this year looks to be another great display.
