The turbine hall at the Tate Modern: an amazing space to behold
I’m going to be honest: I am not a fan of Modern Art. While there are moments of brilliance in the Tate Modern collection, for the most part I find it a tedious visit. Indeed, I shall never forget my 10 year old daughter’s reaction when I took here there after she asked to go: 20 minutes in she paused, looked at me and said, “Dad, can we go somewhere else? This is boring.”
The Tate Modern building IS something to behold. Rather than hide the main turbine hall with floors and galleries they’ve left it open. That creates an amazing space and one I find myself drawn to time and time again. Whether you like Modern Art or not I suggest taking a few minutes to go visit that space, explore it from the various levels the Tate Modern offers and enjoy how it makes you feel.
