Tate Modern

Yesterday, I re-posted Tristram Hunt’s collection of objects in the V&A. Today, the thing that has caught my eye is the set of attached judgments on the success of Tate Modern. I wish I had had it to hand when writing my book on museums because it helps explain how deeply influential Tate Modern has been on other museums internationally. The thing I did enjoy which I read only recently was Karl Sabbagh’s book, Power into Art, about the process which led to it, which gives a remarkable insight into how it happened, including all the problems during its construction. Hard to believe how difficult it was. Twenty years ago today.
