"Between Cinema and a Hard Place"
2000-05-12 until 2000-12-03
Tate Modern
London, , UK

Between Cinema and a Hard Place is a unique survey of art at the end of the twentieth century. Taking the title of a work by Gary Hill, an American video artist, the display addresses one of the most important changes to take place in art in the twentieth century the radical switch that artists have made from presenting a window onto the world to presenting a world in itself.

Ranging from film and video to sculpture, the exhibition features works by the following artists:

Miroslaw Balka, Matthew Barney, Christian Boltanski, Janet Cardiff and George Bures-Miller, James Coleman, Stan Douglas, Douglas Gordon, Antony Gormley, Mona Hatoum, Gary Hill, Rebecca Horn, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Anish Kapoor, Tatsuo Miyajima, Juan Munoz, Bruce Nauman, Cornelia Parker, Gabriel Orozco, Julian Opie, Thomas Schutte, Bill Viola, Jeff Wall and Rachel Whiteread.

From Boltanski's poignant shrines to Kabakov's labyrinthine structures, these created environments are often inspired by the mass media and use materials ranging from Vaseline to video, ceramics to electronics. The display also features sculpture which crucially interacts with the space in which it is shown.

As well as drawing on an element of the Tate Collection which has rarely been shown due to lack of space, the display includes significant loans from around the world.
