Tate Liverpool courts exposure

Art, Lies and VideoTape, a newly opened exhibition of performance art at Tate Liverpool, has been produced with designer Nick Radclyffe and architect Franca di Veroli.

Curated by Adrian George, and subtitled Exposing Performance, the exhibition is an overview of the weird and wonderful history of performance artists over the past century. The latest offering from Liverpool’s home of modern art opened on Friday.

‘The exhibition ranges from the Italian Futurists’ noise machines (pictured), to modern-day video artists, like disabled Bill Shannon, who films himself skateboarding through shopping malls on crutches,’ says Radclyffe.

The show explores our understanding of visual reality, the Art of Noises and viewer perspective. It runs until 25 January 2004.
