Project Space: Stage and Twist - Anna Molska and Ciprian Mure?an

In Stage and Twist a child drinks a mixture of Pepsi and Coca-Cola, a giant puzzle is played by two half-naked young men, and an iconic work by Yves Klein is re-enacted with the artist leaping into the void and hitting the pavement below. In all of these works history is both re-staged and twisted as a means to engage critically with the present day.

Art Exhibition previously on at Tate Modern in United Kingdom.
From Friday 25 May 2012 to Sunday 14 October 2012

This exhibition brings together the Polish artist Anna Molska and the Romanian artist Ciprian Mure?an for their first museum exhibition in London. Molska and Mure?an draw upon historical events and art history to highlight the power of the collective experience in the post-communism era. Both artists question social mechanisms and the construction of individuality. Rather than glorifying the past, each work cheerfully accepts the uncountable failures and shortcomings of contemporary society.

The exhibition is curated by Capucine Perrot, Tate Modern and Magda Lipska, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.
Project Space

At Tate Modern (formerly the Level 2 gallery) is dedicated to presenting contemporary art through a series of collaborations with cultural organisations around the world. It brings together emerging curators from both Tate Modern and other international venues for contemporary art to work together on an exhibition for both locations. Based on curatorial exchange and dialogue, the series showcases the work of new, recently established or rediscovered international artists. The exhibitions therefore open up the possibility of introducing new work and interpretations within differing global contexts.

This series of discursive exhibitions began in 2011 and, to date, has included collaborations with institutions in Amman, Lagos, Istanbul, Mexico City and Warsaw. Forthcoming exhibitions are being developed with partners in Cairo, Lima and New Delhi. The Project Space series aims to explore the most challenging art of today as well as the complexities of operating within a global context for contemporary art.
