TATE MODERN TO PRESENT LARGEST JOAN JONAS WORK

They Come to Us without a Word II



Next spring, Tate Modern will present the largest UK survey of work by Joan Jonas (b. 1936, New York), shedding new light on this pre-eminent figure of performance art who continues to influence a younger generation of artists.



Reflecting the way Jonas works across many different disciplines, this groundbreaking survey will be the first of its kind at Tate, combining a gallery exhibition, a ten day program in the Tanks which will feature live performances by Jonas herself, and a film retrospective in the Starr Cinema. It will show her powerful impact on contemporary art and her dedication to pushing boundaries to this day.



Early and late works will be exhibited alongside each other, reflecting Jonas's interest in revisiting her own history as seen in Cones/May Windows (After Mirage), an installation originally created in 1976 which she re-made in 2011.
