Tate Modern

Far more subversive than its classical sister building, Tate Britain, the powerful design of Tate Modern stands over the Thames in imperious style. Venture into The Tanks that open up to reveal a range of art installations, covering live performances and film and video, all from the exclusive Tate collection. In its previous life as a power station, this is where the oil tanks were positioned, and the raw, industrial feel has remained in place since.

The Turbine Hall has played host to a never ending stream of unforgettable works of contemporary art since its inception. This hallowed space has been interpreted in a number of different ways by the artists who have had their work displayed there, helping to re-shape public perception of modern art. The iconic ramped entrance brings visitors into its industrial atmosphere, creating one of the most dramatic and innovative spaces in art.
