Unprojectionable at the Tate Modern

Published: Friday 6th of June 2008

On June 14th, the Tate Modern presents a major new live performance by the avant-garde video artist Tony Conrad.

Unprojectable: Projection and Perspective has been specially conceived for the acoustics and immense scale of the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, where the performance will take place.

The show is inspired by the hum of the former power station's last remaining generator.

Among the sonic ensemble incorporated in Conrad's performance is an amplified string quartet, electric drill and motors, phonograph arms, film projection and shadows which loom high above the audience.

One of Conrad's most famous work is the 1966 experimental film The Flicker which many consider to be a significant early work of the structural film movement.

While tickets to the show are free, booking is required.

London Pass holders who want to explore the rest of what the Tate Modern has to offer can receive a free audio guide to accompany them around the various exhibitions.
