BMW Tate Live: Liu Ding
Thursday 16 May 2013, 20.00
Part of the series BMW Tate Live: Performance Room
Liu Ding is a Beijing-based artist and curator. With a DJ mixing Baroque music and Chinese voices, 2-D reproductions of artworks from the Tate collection and a spinning mirror ball, Almost Avant-Garde has been created especially for BMW Tate Live Performance Room and invites you to join in live via http://www.youtube.com/user/tate/tatelive. The recorded Chinese voices are from interviews Liu Ding conducted with Chinese artists and art critics active in the 1990s in which they describe their work, experiences, expectations and understanding of art. Liu Ding uses the work to reflect on the Chinese art community’s aspirations to be modern and contemporary.
In 2012 Liu Ding had his first solo exhibition in the United States at the Frye Art Museum, Seattle. In 2009 he was chosen to represent China at the 53rd Venice Biennale and has exhibited extensively in the UK and internationally.
Performance Room is a series of performances commissioned and conceived exclusively for the online space, and the first artistic programme created purely for live web broadcast.
This year Tate Modern invites Joan Jonas, Liu Ding, Ragnar Kjartansson, Daniel Linehan and more to participate in this unique programme.
Performances take place in the Performance Room at Tate Modern in London and are streamed live on Tate’s YouTube Channel directly to your screen.
Each performance is archived and available to view online after the event.More News
