A few weekends ago when we had that inexplicable summer-in-February weather, we decided to DO ALL THE TATE.
My Saturday morning uni class was in Pimlico that week, so Ben met me after and we wandered over to Tate Britain for the Picasso exhibition, which was ace. So much to see - if you have a Tate card or you're willing to splash out on a ticket, I'd definitely recommend checking it out. It's on until July 15th.
After a reviving snack in the cafe, we realised we'd just missed the Tate Boat and would have a bit of a wait for the next one, so opted for a stroll along the river bank with sunshine and coffee to keep us going. At Tate Mark II, we spent some time on the mezzanine mesmerised by the Tacita Dean installation, the latest commission in the Turbine Hall (pictured). Glad we made the effort to trek to Tate Modern as it's unfortunately now finished. We also checked out the Yayoi Kusama exhibition, which was good, but probably not my favourite kind of art to go see. Worth a look for something a bit different though, and I did like her later work, plus the room installations are novel to walk through. Be warned though, they're not kidding when they say not to cross the line around the sprouting penis sculptures...an alarm WILL sound!
