The Magic and Prowess behind London’s Tate Modern

Originally being a disused power station, the Tate Modern was opened to the public as a fully fledged art gallery in the new Millennium. 

Along with its opening, the platform and utopia for all things abstract and wonderful, allowed artists of all kinds to usher in their unique artistic talents. You’ll also find literally anything you can think of here, whether it may be paintings, sculptures, or the likes of hard-hitting performance art pieces.

Famous artists such as Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso and even Roy Lichtenstein feature in the gallery. You might even find yourself stuck for choice, as the site happens to house ten different floors of creations and exhibits.

With its iconic chimney and turbine room, it wouldn’t be hard to spot the venue. If you’re interested in visiting, you can hop on a train to Blackfriars station, or you could walk along the South Bank river instead.
