LONDON.- Significant new acquisitions to Tate’s Collection by some of Britain’s most innovative contemporary artists are on display at Tate Britain. Presented in a newly re-hung suite of contemporary galleries, works by artists including Marc Camille Chaimowicz, Enrico David, Cathy Wilkes and David Musgrave are being shown for the first time at Tate Britain. They form part of an atmospheric installation, entitled Has the film already started?, which highlights the role of scene-setting and performance in British Art from the 1970s to the present day.

Highlights among the new acquisitions include Marc Camille Chaimowicz’s groundbreaking Partial Eclipse 1980–2006, for which there will be a weekly live performance every Saturday afternoon at 15.00, and Cathy Wilkes’s (We are) Pro Choice 2008, a large-scale installation which brings together discarded everyday objects to create an unsettling tableau. A further group of recent acquisitions by artists including David Musgrave and Enrico David are also brought together to show ways in which the human body has been evoked and transformed through a range of collaged and assembled material.

Has the film already started? traces the story of how performance and related ideas have come to occupy a defining place in the art of the past 30 years. It shows how these ideas have been transmitted across different generations between teachers and students as well as in reference to earlier artists. Displays of new acquisitions are complemented by existing collection displays of contemporary art at Tate Britain which explore narrative and found objects including Mike Nelson’s labyrinthine The Coral Reef 2000 and recent work by Cerith Wyn Evans, from which the title Has the film already started? is taken.

Material recently acquired by Tate Archive has also been selected to explore Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s provocative activity in the 1970s, including the infamous Prostitution exhibition at the ICA in 1976. Their work under the name COUM Transmissions has been powerfully influential and illustrates the complex relationship between physical performance and its documentation, representation and legacy.

An installation by Corin Sworn is shown as part of Tate Britain's Art Now programme of emerging British art. In the first major display of her work in London, Sworn presents Endless Renovation 2010, evolved from the chance discovery of a collection of slides and a diary in a skip outside the artist’s house. Sworn’s piece reflects her interest in the ways in which objects are borrowed, appropriated and reconfigured to tell various stories.

Has the film already started? is curated by Lizzie Carey-Thomas, Katharine Stout, Clarrie Wallis and Andrew Wilson, Curators of Contemporary British Art at Tate Britain, alongside Assistant Curators Helen Delaney, Leyla Fakhar and Carmen Juliá.
