I like modern art. Good conceptual modern art, not the sort where you see one dot on white or an empty canvas, and this is supposed to mean something. The best modern art museum I’ve been to so far was in Madrid and I have not seen anything better since, but then maybe I’ve been to the wrong museums.
Recently I realized that I have not really been to any modern art museum in London *gasp* One could of course argue that London, with its people, and fashion, and shops, and street art, and architecture (I mean new buildings) is like one gigantic modern art museum. True. I’ll be honest with you, a visit to a local branch of Paperchase feels more exciting than some modern art museums I’ve been to in other countries.
Tate Modern is the ultimate destination, though at the moment I am interested in Saatchi gallery. I’ve followed their blog for a while, and I like what they are doing. I also happen to work in the London Victoria area and I have realized I am only 5min walk away from Saatchi. This means no more excuses.
Admission is free to all exhibitions. Gallery is open from 10am to 6pm 7 days a week. Google Photography Prize looks interesting, and it’s only on until July 15.
So I am thinking heading there Thursday evening 4ish pm, right after work, walking from Victoria via Sloane Square (should be a good walk), and finally checking it out. Want to join?
