London is filled with free museums brimming with historically and culturally rich displays. One of these museums in Tate Modern, an abandoned power station located just north of Southwark that was turned into an art museum in the year 2000.
Tate Modern exhibits an extensive display of modern art, meaning art from 1900 onwards, gathered from around the world. Comprising three massive floors filled with artistic pieces, Tate Modern separates its displays into four main categories revolved around the primary periods within the modern era: Surrealism, Minimalism, Post-war innovations in abstraction and figuration, and the three associated movements of Cubism, Futurism and Vorticism.
Within the rooms and along the walls of Tate Modern, one can find works from some of the world’s most prominent artists, including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, and Jackson Pollock.
Filled with room after room of modern and abstract works of art, Tate Modern is one of London’s most intriguing and discussion-provoking museums.
