Tate Modern

by David Allen May. 19, 2017 1010 views

The Tate Gallery has four major art galleries, two are in London one in Liverpool and one in St Ives. Tate Modern is a converted power station on the South Bank of the Thames and is connected to the city by the Millenium bridge.

I had gone specifically to see two exhibitions. The Elton John collection of Modernist photography - The Radical Eye, and the Wolfgang Tillmans. 

The Radical Eye closes this weekend if you are in the London area this weekend and have not seen it all I can say is drop whatever you are doing and go. Photography was not allowed in this exhibition but otherwise one is free to use a camera as long as you don't use flash or a tripod. 

I am not a photographer who makes a lot of exposures, (I made just 36 in the course of the whole day) in any case I was there to look at photographs rather than take them. First a group of some of the interior of the turbine hall and the entrance area to the tanks.

Tillman's work is wide ranging a lot is conceptually driven and this exhibition which he had created as an installation is of work he has been involved in since 2003.

Just a few shots taken as I viewed the exhibition. I preferred to look and think rather than see the exhibition through the view finder of the camera.
