www.tank.tv at Tate Modern
19th - 21st September 2008
tank.tv has the pleasure of holding a weekend of screenings from its 2008 Guest Curators Programme in Tate Modern's Starr Auditorium. www.tank.tv invited some of the world's foremost curators of artist's film and video to create exhibitions exclusively for its online platform. Four of these shows have been re-thought and re-constructed specifically for screening at Tate Modern.
Join us after the screenings for wonderful cakes kindly provided by Patisserie Valerie and drinks generously supplied by Kirin and Firefly.
Tickets are on sale now and available to book via Tate's website:
Ken Jacobs, Return to the Scene of the Crime.
Friday 19 September 2008, 19.00
In a contemporary riff on one of his landmark works, the influential experimental filmmaker Ken Jacobs uses new technology to both interrogate and arouse a theatrical tableau, shot in 1905, based on Hogarth's Southwark Fair. The antique film print is probed, exploded and reconstituted in the digital domain with radical ingenuity and infectious wit. This extraordinary new work teaches us how to see. Screening curated by Mark Webber.
The Young and Evil, Curated by Stuart Comer.
Saturday 20 September 2008, 19.00
Reconsidering the historical contours and shifting relationships of sex and community in the digital age, a range of artists has been invited to select two works: one contemporary video shown to be shown online, and one historical film to be screened in the cinema. Selectors include AA Bronson, Drew Daniel, William E Jones, Daria Martin, Carlos Motta, Henrik Olesen, Karol Radziszewski, Emily Roysdon, Bruce Yonemoto and Akram Zaatari.
She doesn't think so but she's dressed for the h-bomb, curated by Negar Azimi.
Sunday 21 September 2008, 15.00
'She doesn’t think so but she’s dressed for the h-bomb' explores the weight of diverse histories in defining the current moment - whether manifest in the form of national myth, ritual, architecture or pop culture.
