Led by Artists Cai Yuan & Jian Jun Xi ( aka Mad For Real), The 2nd edition of Artists’ Marathon takes place in Turbine Hall, Tate Moderm, held in parallel with the 35th London Marathon.

‘Breaking through the representational crust is possible with the erupting force of an aesthetics that both harnesses and releases energies’

Sarat Maharaj, Farewell to Post-Colonialis

The Artists’ Marathon is designed to generate and harness energy as a public art event.  Using the marathon as a form within the physical structure of a well-known art institution, the Artists’ Marathon involves mental and physical stamina as a communal event that requires participation as a unifying experience welcoming anyone to join in.  Taking place in the Turbine Hall, Tate Modern every year, artists are encouraged to take part in the project, held in parallel with the major international event of the London Marathon.

地点:英国伦敦泰特现代美术馆涡轮大厅

由艺术家蔡元和奚建军(疯狂和真实小组)发起,第二届艺术家马拉松将在泰特现代美术馆涡轮大厅进行,与第三十五届伦敦城市马拉松同步。

当马拉松变成艺术,当美术馆成为操场。

“表象的壳经由自身能量的释放,是有可能通过力量和美学的完美结合打破的”。《和后殖民主义说再见》— 萨拉.马哈拉吉

本次的艺术家马拉松旨在传递和运用公众力量形成一个艺术事件,把马拉松作为一种身体艺术的艺术形式在著名的艺术机构实施。艺术家的马拉松包含了身体上和心灵上的双重耐力,作为公共活动,它还需要参与者经受统一的实践过程。热忱欢迎感兴趣的公众加入我们。这个艺术活动将持续每年在泰特的涡轮大厅进行一次,并和重要的国际事件同步,我们期待艺术家积极参与到这个项目中来。
