Oil Tanks as Art at the Tate ModernSubscribe to our RSS news feed

Ever thought heating oil tanks could be artistic? A dramatic new development at the Tate Modern opened on July 18th as three 30x7 metre oil tanks were repositioned to display performance and installation art, providing space for discussion and education.  Known as “The Tanks,” the giant underground chambers have remained unused since the power station was decommissioned in 1981 and will now be incorporated into the Tate Modern’s new annexe, playing host to new audio and performance works, installations and film.

The Tanks have been launched with a fifteen-week festival which ends 28 October 2012, celebrating performance and installation art and the historical works that have shaped it. The launch was part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad.

If you are interested in learning more about The Tanks, the Tate’s curators have written an interesting article on the Tate’s Web site.
