Tate Modern is going to get covered in fog

By Matt Breen

Best take a torch with you if you're planning on visiting the Tate Modern in March – it'll be covered in fog.

As part of the 'Ten Days Six Nights' exhibition, Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya will be covering the terrace outside the Tate's new Switch House extension in artificially created mist. It's something of a speciality of hers: she created her first fog piece in Tokyo in 1970, and covered a Bristol bridge in mist last year as part of IBT festival.

It's going to be part of an exciting few days – this show is the first there that's entirely dedicated to live art. Expect performances, installations, films, sound works and talks. Just don't go saying that there's no substance to Nakaya's art. Or that it's just a load of hot air. Or that you haven't got the foggiest idea what it's about. Or... okay, I'll stop now.

'Ten Days Six Nights' will be at Tate Modern from March 24 to April 2 2017.
