Hero to a generation of younger artists, Joan Jonas is a pioneer of performance and video who has pushed the boundaries of art for the last five decades. Experience the largest exhibition of Jonas’s work ever held in the UK. Early works from the late 1960s are shown alongside recent installations dealing with topical themes such as climate change and extinction. These include landmark installations Lines in the Sand, Reanimation and The Juniper Tree, which was purchased for Tate by the Tate Americas Foundation. Joan Jonas will also perform live alongside other artists as part of the BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights programme. The exhibition, which closes on August 5, is organized by Tate Modern and Haus der Kunst, Munich in partnership with the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto.
