Gallery Tour of the new Tate Modern – with art historian Linda Casey
Thu 10 November 2016, 11:00 – 12:00 GMT
Join Tate tour guide Linda Casey on a tour of the recently opened Tate Modern extension, as she enthusiastically explores the work of artists including superstars Yayoi Kusama and Louise Bourgeois, and local celebs of the YBA movement. From The Tanks, to the 10th floor viewing gallery, the new Tate building is an awe-inspiring addition to London's gallery scene.
This fresh hang pulls no punches – new director Frances Morris addresses the imbalance of what has been on show amongst today’s art museums. Here we see a more female and global view of the Tate Collection. Her goal is no less than to change our minds on what the Western canon of art should look like.
There is a limit of 15 places on this tour.
The group will meet by the Media Networks section, Boiler House Level 4 East.
