The Tanks Go LiveThe opening of Tate Modern's permanent Oil Tanks extension ("some of the most exciting new spaces for art in the world," Tate Modern director Nicholas Serota) is marked by a 15-week arts festival from 18 July to 28 October 2012, as part of the London 2012 Festival. The inaugural festival inside the Tanks will be the first chance the public will have to see the first phase of a 215 million pound extension project that will increase Tate Modern's size by 60 per cent. Afterwards, the Tanks which will host contemporary and performance art, will be closed at times to allow building work on the new galleries above.† Artists involved include Japan's Ei Arakawa, Jelili Atiku from Nigeria, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker from Belgium, and Britain's Tina Keane, Eddie Peake and Lis Rhodes. Families are invited to take part in Undercurrent, a 10-day film-making project for young people with the end results projected onto the Tanks' walls. Be warned: the Oil Tanks "could radically alter the way people experience art" - if the Tate Modern director fulfils his ambition.

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
