Checking out modern art at Switch House
Tate Modern London has a new building called Switch House, making it the biggest museum of modern art in the world!
As it is the opening week, Switch House was extremely packed with art lovers waiting to get their first peek at the new site (myself included). The queue to get to the tenth floor was quite long, but I would say it was worth the wait to see a fabulous 360 view of the city.
It makes me think about all the things in London that I haven’t been to yet. You can see The Shard here. The Shard has restaurants and I do believe you can do yoga there as well.
Unfortunately, you can’t see the Gherkin but you can see the awesome building that melts stuff!
The sun was setting.
As for the museum itself, it looks like it is a nice space for art.
Uniqlo was holding a ‘Dream London’ event. We were asked to vote for the future we wanted. We had various choices but I decided on ‘a future in which all surprises are good.’
I love this painting/collage/not sure what it is.
And the tiniest corridor ever.
A land of cheese…..
A weird projection thing!
There were some great interactive projects. This was part of a London map which linked to a further global map and allowed for you see where visitors lived in London and then a link to the place where they originate from.
A cute kid getting their portrait done!
All in all, a nice day out! I do look forward to going back to Switch House when there are fewer people around as I’m not a crowd lover and would love to take more time to look at the art.
