Life of an Artwork: Quadrille by Rose English | Tate

In 1975, artist Rose English staged a performance in the dressage arena of the Southampton Horse Show. The audience, there to watch the equestrian events, was surprised to see a group of six dancers take to the field, dressed in costumes that resembled horse hoofs and tails. This performance now lives on, in an installation including film, photos and objects from the Show. In this film, the artist and Gates Sofer, Sculpture Conservator, discuss what it means for performance art to take on a new life inside the walls of an art museum.
