Out & About

Tate Modern

Tate Modern’s Switch House extension opened in the summer and I went to have a look around this week! The tower creates 60 per cent more space for exhibitions in the gallery, and was designed by Herzog & de Meuron‘s…you can read more about it here! The extension has ten floors and features a 360 degree rooftop viewing deck at the top where you can get some pretty impressive views of the London skyline. (some daytime and night-time shots below!)

I also checked out the Robert Rauschenberg exhibition whilst at the Tate, it’s the first full-scale retrospective of the modernist artist’s work since his death in 2008 and features his silkscreens including the one of President Kennedy, 1,000 gallons of ‘bubbling clay’ (Mud Muse -1968-71) alongside paintings, sculptures and photographs from throughout his career. The exhibition is on until April 2nd, find out more details on the Tate website.
