Pablo Bronstein – Historical Dances in an Antique Setting | TateShots

Pablo Bronstein is known for his interest in pre-20th century European design and architecture and for creating often satirical performances which fuse modern and historic elements commenting on art and its place in society. Bronstein is the latest in a series of celebrated British artists to create a site-specific work in response to the imposing Duveen galleries which sit at the heart of Tate Britain.

His most ambitious project to date Historical Dances in an Antique Setting takes inspiration from the neo-classical surroundings of the Duveen galleries and the artist’s interest in the Baroque period to create a continuous live performance. Dancers will move through the galleries interacting with architectural elements, creating a spectacle not to be missed.

Pablo Bronstein’s Historical Dances in an Antique Setting (2016) is currently was on display at Tate Britain:
