Performance Art at the Museum


When I visited the Tate Britain at the beginning of October, I didn't expect to see a performance art piece in one of the galleries.  In what is called the Duveen Galleries, I observed three lovely young women moving through the galleries and stopping occasionally to strike a classic pose.


The piece was created by British/Argentinian artist Pablo Bronstein who creates performance pieces as well as drawings and installations.  His work is all based in architectural interpretations.



I believe the piece was called "Historical Dances in an Antique Setting".

































The women seemed to glide from room to room, totally oblivious to the people around them enjoying the performance.






























I really love a museum that challenges the mind and invigorates the spirit and the Tate organization certainly does that.  You never know what you will see or experience in one of their museums.

Lots of eye candy and fun to watch, but I'd like to know more about what they are interpreting...love your photos - so bright and clear for being inside.

Unusual, but I like it!

Performance art generally leaves me cold but these ladies in their bright red blouses certainly give the grey museum a flash of color.
