Altermodern: Tate Triennial 2009 Prologues
26 April 2008 – 17 January 2009
Tate's fourth Triennial exhibition, curated by Nicolas Bourriaud who co-founded the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, opens at Tate Britain in February 2009. It explores a new concept, defined by him as 'the Altermodern'. The term describes art made in today's global context which is a reaction against standardisation and commercialism.
A series of one-day events, or Prologues, are taking place in the lead up to the show, to introduce and provoke debate on the Triennial's themes. Each Prologue includes films, performances and talks.
