German artist Anne Imhof, winner of the prestigious Golden Lion at the 2017 Venice Biennale will be shown for the first time in the UK this March, with her new Live Exhibition, Sex. She will be the first artist to occupy the full suite of the Tate Modern’s Tanks – the world’s first museum space dedicated to performance, film and installation – with a single project. The installation that combines music, sculpture and painting the exhibition will unfold over ten days and six nights of performance.

One of the most pioneering contemporary artists of her generation, Imhof is known for Faust, an intense and engaging installation created for the Venice Biennale in 2017, where she divided the pavilion space with glass partitions and floors inhabited by choreographed performers. She will continue to explore themes of anxiety, isolation, technology and identity in her new work for the Tate Modern. During the day visitors can walk through and explore the exhibition freely, and there will be ticketed performances across six evenings too. The evening shows sold out almost immediately, but a second batch of tickets have just been released so check this page to book.

Sex is the first of three chapters in a project commissioned by Tate Modern, London, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin.
