Joan JonasFive decades of performance art by influential American artist Joan Jonas go on display in an immersive exhibition taking over Level 2 of Tate Modern's Blavatnik Building and in The Tanks. Originally trained as a sculptor, Jonas began experimenting with performance art, video and props after meeting choreographers Trisha Brown and Yvonne Rainer in the 1960s. The exhibition explores her personal items and her passion for story-telling, from the retelling of a Brothers Grimm fairytale to references to contemporary political events. Jonas is also the subject of this year's BMW Tate Live Exhibition, a ten day programme of live performance art in the Tanks.
