This month’s programme celebrates performance and video pioneer Joan Jonas and her current exhibition at Tate Modern. Tickets for the exhibition are available for just £10 from 18.00 onwards. Expect a vibrant mix of art, music, film, drop-in workshops and pop-up talks.
Music Programmed by NTS Radio
In the South Tanks NTS present the UK premiere of SAFE, an audio-visual collaboration between Warp Record’s Darkstar and filmmaker Cieron Magat. The ever eclectic Lukid will close the night, plus enjoy diverse and experimental soundscapes from Silvia Kastel.
In the Terrace Bar, there will be ambient and dubwise selections from Kast, Dr Kruger and Fergus McDonald inspired by Joan Jonas’s musical influences.
Take part in experimental group drawing rituals with Art Macabre, inspired by the drawing techniques of Joan Jonas. Work with elongated sticks and repetitive mark-making and become part of a drawing performance as you work.
