A Bigger Splash: Painting After Performance ArtThe Tate Modern takes a close look at the vibrant relationship between performance and painting with their new exhibition, A Bigger Splash. A diverse range of art genres will be contrasted and considered using the notion that the canvas is a stage on which a gestural or theatrical act takes place. Jackson Pollock and David Hockney will be amongst the artists included in the exhibition, alongside face and body artists Cindy Sherman and Jack Smith, the paintings of Vienna Actionists and Nikki de St Phalle's Shooting Pictures. This insightful collection provides a chance to look at established works and also to explore the work of new emerging artists whose approach is influenced by these historical sources.

 

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
