We went recently on a trip into London to the Tate Modern. Here is just a small selection of the art we saw - some probably very familiar, and other less so.
The thing with seeing art in a gallery for me, is that sometimes you realize that you have until then completely misunderstood a piece. Perhaps the scale of a painting makes you reassess it. I hadn't realized quite how enormous Lichtenstein's Whaam! is.
One of our favourite pieces was the Tower of Babel by Clido Meireles. Only understandable when you are in front of this enormous tower of vintage radios, which are all tuned to different stations and playing at minimum volume, so the sound merges into a cacophony that you can't interpret.
