Tate Modern is looking for women aged near of beyond 60 from all communities to take part in an exciting new work by the artist Suzanne Lacy.
On Sunday February 3, 2013, Tate Modern presents a new participatory artwork by artist Suzanne Lacy that brings together themes in British public discourse: ageing, activism, and the role of women’s personal commitment in shaping the public agenda.
History demonstrates women’s roles in key social and political movements between 1950 and the 1980’s, revealing how their values transformed the social and political landscape. The commonalities in these histories are not represented in the public imaginary, yet they are embodied in the relationships, memories, archives and current activisms of older women.
We will look at the histories of ordinary women and how they participated in, or were influenced by, the movements of their times. The artwork a hopeful metaphor of inclusion and social relevance and examines the importance of older women in current public life.
We are looking for women aged near or beyond 60 to participate in this performance taking place on Sunday 3 February 2013.
