Has the Film Already Started? is a new suite of collection galleries which highlights ways in which ideas of performance have come to occupy a defining place in art of the last 30 years. These major works explore different approaches to the use of narrative, tableaux and found objects.
For the first time at Tate Britain, a performance work, Marc Camille Chaimowicz’s Partial Eclipse... 1980–2006 will be integrated within the displays. The performance will take place each Saturday afternoon at 3pm. Corin Sworn’s installation Endless Renovation 2010 is also shown within these displays as part of the Art Now series of projects by emerging artists.
