DESCRIPTION

Situated in the unlikely environs of a former power station on the banks of the River Thames, Tate Modern is the most visited modern art museum in the world and a global landmark. This revised and updated edition of the best-selling Tate Modern: The Handbook is introduced by Chris Dercon, Tate Modern's Director, and features an essay by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, in which he surveys the achievements of the past ten years and also looks forward to the exciting developments that lie ahead in the next decade. Writer and broadcaster Andrew Marr contributes an illuminating essay examining the Tate Modern phenomenon. Tate curators Matthew Gale (Head of Displays), Frances Morris (Head of Collections - International Art) and Sheena Wagstaff (Chief Curator 2001 - 12) write about Tate Modern's collection displays and highlights from Tate Modern's programme since the year 2000, including the stunning Turbine Hall commissions. Artist Michael Craig-Martin describes the process of transforming the vast industrial building into an art gallery.
