Tino Sehgal Workshops

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Tate Modern is offering local residents and workers the opportunity to participate in workshops with the artist Tino Sehgal, which will take place in the Turbine Hall out of the normal museum opening hours.

During these workshops, Sehgal will explore ideas behind his practice with the group.

The workshop activities will include game-like conversational and movement exercises, as well as the opportunity to experiment and create your own exercises.

Those of all ages and experience are welcome, participation is free. Refreshments will be provided.

Sehgal is a British-born, Berlin-based artist trained in economics and dance in Germany whose work has been presented at ICA London, Tate Modern, and recently in a major exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

In his work Sehgal constructs situations that defy the traditional context of museum and gallery environments, focusing on the fleeting gestures and social subtleties of lived experience rather than on material objects.

Relying exclusively on the human voice, bodily movement, and social interaction, Sehgal's works nevertheless fulfil the parameters of a traditional artwork: they are presented continuously during the operating hours of the museum, they can be bought and sold, and, by virtue of being repeatable, they can persist over time.

In 2012, Sehgal will undertake the commission for the Unilever Series in the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern.
