Tate Modern London is your place to go if you wanna see contemporary art. I must admit that the building’s facade itself is not of a contemporary design but a boring concrete that doesn’t scream modern. And the reason is that – it used to be a power plant and converted into an international venue of contemporary art pieces. As a friend said, “All that contemporary shit you’ve seen somewhere, they’ve all been here at Tate Modern first.” He could be right. 😉
And the best thing about being a tourist in London? The art galleries and museums are FREE! Yes, they’re free, except of course for few visiting exhibitions. I did save a lot of money as museums are exorbitantly charged anywhere in big cities around the world. I love free stuff. Therefore, I love London! 😀
Tate Modern London is your go-to gallery for contemporary art. It is Britain’s national museum of contemporary art where you see the works of big names in the art world.
You’ll find original works of Matisee, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, and more. You’ll also find aspiring and controversial artists’ works on display.
I love that spaces here are humongous and displays are well-executed.
Even if it can be crowded at times during the day, there are still spaces where you can be alone with a piece of artwork.
Don’t go here if you’re in a “hurry.” You won’t enjoy it and perhaps, the art pieces won’t even talk to you. 😀
Yes, the facade might look a bit hideous but the interior is very contemporary.
When visiting here, don’t forget to go to the bar upstairs for this view.
And perhaps, for a glass of vino. 😉
Enjoy and drink in the view
