Tate Modern

The Tate Modern is a British museum that is part of the larger Tate museum complex.

It is located in London, in the Bankside area and was built by recovering the old thermoelectric plant. Construction began in 1995 thanks to a project by the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron.

The Tate Modern was completed and inaugurated in 2010.

It is one of the most important modern art museums in the world and is the most visited with about five million visitors a year, which is why the spaces have been expanded with the construction of an additional pyramid building near the Tate Modern that could accommodate more people.

In addition, the museum is connected via a special river passage with Tate Britain, the latter also belonging to the Tate complex.

The permanent collection, on the third and fifth floors of the building, boasts masterpieces by the greatest exponents of international art: Boccioni, Modigliani, Warhol, Klee, Magritte, Picasso, Rothko, Pollock, de Chirico, Chagall, Braque and many others.

The Tate Modern also organizes important temporary exhibitions in the so-called Turbine Hall, a five-story space where various artists are often exhibited on a temporary basis.

There is also the Project Space, a gallery on the north side of the building that is aimed at hosting contemporary art exhibitions, in collaboration with other international organizations.
