As part of UBS Openings: The Long Weekend at Tate Modern in London, Italian artist Paola Pivi will present a performance on Monday. Called ‘1000,’ the piece involves 1000 people on the mezzanine bridge above the Turbine Hall screaming as loudly as possible. Many of those participating come from organizations such as Free Tibet and are screaming as a form of protest.  Still, others are likely to scream about nothing in particular, having very few directives from the artist. ‘1000’ takes place on Monday, May 25, 2009.
