The Tate Modern museum in London has a current installation in its' massive turbine hall by Carsten Hoeller, until April 2007. It is so impressive, inspirational and interactive. Museums in Europe never cease to amaze me as places where one sees people of all ages, enjoying art. What I love the most is the pure nature of being surrounded by art. Whether old or new, the exposure cannot help but feed the soul.
What the Tate Slides do really well is engage, the spectator and the participant. Visually and physically, not to mention the screams of delight to those brave enough to take the slide from the 5th floor of this massive building. Kind of like the inner scream of delight I experienced when discovering a collection of Mark Rothko paintings that I had never, ever seen on the third floor.
This was my first visit to the Tate Modern, what took me so long??? Another reason to love London even more!
