Bruce Nauman, VIOLINS VIOLENCE SILENCE 1981–2. ARTIST ROOMS Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. Lent by Anthony d'Offay 2010.

Bruce Nauman

  • 6 October 2020 — 17 January 2021

A journey through the ground-breaking works of this quintessential contemporary artist.

Bruce Nauman is a restlessly inventive artist. Since the late 1960s he has continually tested what an artwork can be, by reshaping old forms and creating new ones. His ground-breaking works using sound, film, video, neon, holograms and 3D have influenced generations of artists.

This is the first major exhibition of his work in London in more than 20 years. It will allow visitors to engage with the artist’s universe through immersive installations with a strong emphasis on sound and moving image, as well as poetic sculptures and neon pieces.

Major works like Double Steel Cage Piece 1974, Anthro/Socio (Rinde Spinning) 1991 and Contrapposto Split 2017 will highlight Nauman’s distinctive preoccupations and how he incessantly revisits them – yet never repeats himself.

Presented in the Eyal Ofer Galleries

Exhibition organised by Tate Modern and Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in collaboration with Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Zanele Muholi Ntozakhe II, Parktown 2016

Zanele Muholi

  • 29 April — 18 October 2020 *on now

Tate Modern presents the first major mid-career survey of visual activist Zanele Muholi in the UK.

Born in South Africa, Muholi came to prominence in the early 2000s with photographs that sought to envision black lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex lives beyond deviance or victimhood.

Muholi’s work challenges hetero-patriarchal ideologies and representations, presenting the participants in their photographs as confident and beautiful individuals bravely existing in the face of prejudice, intolerance and, frequently, violence.

While Muholi’s intimate photographs of others launched their international career, their intense self-portraits solidified it. This exhibition will present the full breadth of Muholi’s photographic and activist practice.

Exhibition organised by Tate Modern in collaboration with the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, Gropius Bau, Berlin and Bildmuseet at Umeå University

The BT Series has been developed with BT's creative design and filmmaking team. As exclusive sponsor of Tate Online, BT provides Tate with technological support, online broadcasting and hosting, and develops innovative projects like this.

Online Courses

Tate's new online course on Artists' Techniques and Methods is the first of a new selection of online courses to be launched over the next two years.

Online Study Days

http://www.tate.org.uk/learning/studydays/

The study days often relate closely to major exhibitions at Tate Modern or to key aspects of the curriculums taught at The Open University. Each study day is broken into a series of short presentations, which are supported with summary information and suggested further reading. The content will have most value for those with some existing knowledge in histories and theories of modern art.
