Tate Modern is one of my favourite contemporary art galleries in London. The Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron had transformed the former Bankside Power Station into a magnificent international modern art gallery visited by 5.3 million people last year (Source: bbc.co.uk).
I love the fact you can go there for a day and explore free exhibitions, and the famous Turbine Hall’s installations. The most memorable for me was Olafur Eliasson: The Weather Project (2003).
I’m a huge street art fan, so the Street Art Exhibition in 2008 made a great impression on me as well.
Last Friday we went with S to see ‘Lichtenstein: A Retrospective’, which we enjoyed.
My favourite paintings come under War and romance theme focusing on melodramatic stories and clichés popularised by film and TV of that era.
