If you’re in London, don’t miss the chance to see what almost 5 million guests a year already know – that a visit to the Tate Modern is a fabulous opportunity to experience some of the world's greatest works of art. From widely known pieces of modern art to more obscure works, the museum contains enough variety to make it the most popular modern art museum in the world.
The Tate Modern is part of London’s Tate Gallery system. Built in the former Bankside power station, the building redesign by Herzog and de Meuron does a fine job of repurposing the structure for gallery use, offering a space true to it’s industrial roots but with dramatic lighting and ample gallery space.
Visiting the Tate Modern
The Tate is divided into 4 main galleries which house the museum’s permanent collection. Structure and Clarity explores the development of abstract art since the start of the 20th century. Energy and Process focuses on the radical Italian art movement of the 1960’s and 70’s. Transformed Visions looks at abstract expressionism following World War II, and Poetry and Dreams includes over 70 works from the surrealists.
Special Exhibits: While the permanent exhibits are wonderful, don’t think for a minute that the Tate would rest on those laurels. Fine temporary exhibits are always exciting here and provide something new at every visit. Recent artists on display have included the likes of Paul Klee and Henri Matisse.
Kids: Traveling with youngsters? Not a problem at the Tate. Kids programs are varied and plentiful. Try a multi-media guided tour for families, or a weekend open studio where kids create and play with a variety of materials and ideas.
