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.
