Charles Atlas takes on the world…at The Tate



If you saw any of Michael Clark’s recent performances at the Barbican you’ll be familiar with artist Charles Atlas, Clark’s go-to lighting designer since 1984, collaborator with Merce Cunningham and artist in his own right.

He takes over the subterraenean Tanks space at the Tate Modern this Tuesday for a week-long collaboration with Parisian choreographers Ceclilia Bengolea & Francois Chaignaud, NY performance artist Johanna Constantine and sound artist Helm – quite a roll call!

There is a ticketed performance on Thursday 21st, but plenty more opportunities to see the installation and watch open rehearsals for free over the course of the week.

While you’re at it, take a trip over to Finsbury Square for his stylish solo show Glacier at the Bloomberg Space, on till the end of the month, making full use of the empty space with immersive wrap-around projections and sound design.
