What’s NEW at TATE MODERN: LONDON

So I don’t know if it’s me or all us ART fans out there love going to the same museum 1000x just to see their favourite works… but this last time I went to visit the Tate this past weekend, I got a MASSIVE SURPRISE. While much of the Tate is under construction, that did not stop them from bringing out their A Game. See for yourself:

To begin Gerhard Richter’s 11 Glass Panes is now on display. Put 11 planes of glass together and what do you get? A FABULOUS mirror (obvi take a SELFIE in it when you’re there – it is the cool thing to do)!

Ellsworth Kelly has a WHOLE room – while I am only showing one piece it is because I am encouraging you to go and see the rest! They are LARGER THAN LIFE and truly BRILLIANT minimal pieces of art.

Lastly, another new piece I came across was Tracey Emin’s Hate and Power Can be a Terrible Thing. What a tragic past she had, but what a GENIUS way to express her emotions.

Get inspired. Express yourself. Love He(ART).

MOMA: My Love for Modern Art is an Understatement

I was born into the Modern Art world. I was raised as a Modern Art enthusiast/fanatic. And going to the MOMA only made me love everything from 1900-1970 even more. And what was even better is that Claes Oldenburg’s The Store and (The Street) are on exhibition. Check out the pics below!

The Store:

But Oldenburg is not my only true love at this museum. Everything from Warhol (Pop Art) to Judd (Minimalism) to Lewitt (Minimalism) to Kosuth (Conceptual Art)… and MORE was FASCINATING, BREATHTAKING, and BRILLIANT!

Kosuth:

And on top of all these MIND BLOWING iconic works, there is currently an Ellsworth Kelly exhibition of his Chatham series (below) to TOP IT OFF. WOWZAHS.

MOMA you are totally ROCKING the Modern Art game. If you are a MODERNIST I heavily suggest to block out at least three hours to truly absorb everything this institution has to offer. Or more.
