It is Wonderful

LONDON: If you do not happen to be in London this week you can still participate in one of the greatest art programs in the world. On Thursday, February 27, Tate Modern in London will broadcast the online live performances by British artist Cally Spooner following her live musical at Tate Britain, And You Were Wonderful, On Stage.

Spooner’s Performance Room production finds itself situated somewhere between a rehearsal, a chat show and a promo; featuring the gestures of public figures who stumbled at a moment of liveness, a mezzo-soprano narcissist channeling public disappointment via you tube comments, a lip-syncing employee and a gossiping, absent Chorus Line. Her work includes writing, film, live performance, and broadcasting. Spooner’s productions have been presented at Performa 13, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Kunsthal Charlottenburg, Copenhagen; KW Institute, Berlin; Wysing Art Centre, UK; Jeu De Paume, Paris; Serpentine Gallery, London. Cally Spooner is a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists 2013.

Audiences are invited to enter the online BMW Tate Live Performance Room via www.youtube.com/user/tate/tatelive at 20.00 in the UK and exactly the same moment across time zones on the specified dates: 15:00 on the East Coast of America, 21:00 in mainland Europe, 23:00 in Russia. The performance is followed by a live Q&A for which you are invited to tweet your questions @TateLive #bmwtatelive.

brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.

of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
