The next BMW Tate Live performance takes place this Thursday at 8pm GMT. The “strictly online” art event features Japanese artist Meiro Kouzimi whose video work examines Japanese culture and history. We’ve just seen Meiro’s fabulous and slightly disturbing Portrait of a Young Samurai at the Future Generation Art Prize and are very excited to interview him prior to his Tate gig (interview upcoming). So stay tuned and especially don’t forget to log in on Thursday to watch him live!

About BMW Tate Live:
BMW Tate Live is an innovative art project that focuses on curating in digital space. Commissioned performances take place at Tate Modern, but can be only viewed online: either in real time, with a possibility of direct interaction, or later on at YouTube. Previous performances featured artists Jérôme Bel, Pablo Bronstein, Emily Roysdon, Harrell Fletcher, Joan Jonas and Liu Ding. BMW Tate Live performances are being curated by Catherine Wood (Tate’s curator of Contemporary Art and Performance), assisted by Capucine Perrot.
