slowartday: Cornelia Parker: Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, 1991 The visual cacophony that Parker creates in this mixed media installation is stunning; we particularly like her use of light and shadow to expand the piece’s boundaries past their physical edges. If you stumbled across this work in a museum, how long do you think you’d spend looking at it?
Tate Modern, London This museum deserves it's rep! I loved how everything was laid out and informative. I also really appreciated how well women artists were represented. I'd turn around and there'd be a really cool piece, so I'd go read the card and bamm female artist. Plus the card would also generally have neat info about the artist and the work
Tate Modern (& contemporary art.) Warhol, Picasso, Pollock, Man Ray, Monet, Lichenstein, Kandinski, Hockney, Dali? Guess those art history courses in college really did pay off. Can't wait to see them in person! AND with free admission? (I'll be a kid in a candy store.)
