ARCHIVE 232 – STAIRS AT TATE MODERN
May 20, 2016 10 Comments
In 2005 I went ape over Modern Art – in no small measure due to attending presentations on such luminaries as Degas, Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec, which were put on by Bristol University. Such was my enthusiasm that I made two trips to Tate Modern, in London, to see some of these masters’ work at first hand.
It is said that the UK consists of two parts, London and the rest, and that’s true – in any event London is not for me, its always far too big, far too busy, and it tires me out.
Tate Modern was crowded, that was only to be expected, but it was really quite something seeing so much artwork in the raw. While there though, I also became visually intrigued by the vast emptiness of the Turbine Hall, and especially by the metal stairs that led up from it to other levels in the building.
