Tate Modern is ten. 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 10th anniversary edition of the best-selling "Tate Modern: The Handbook" features a new foreword by Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate. In it, he surveys the achievements of the past ten years, but 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 Frances Morris and Sheena Wagstaff write on Tate Modern's collection displays and on 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.
Featuring an illustrated A-Z of over 100 artists, with concise and accessible entries and explanations of key terms in art history and museology, "Tate Modern: The Handbook" is an ideal introduction to both the world's most popular modern art museum and the art of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It comes with an introduction by Andrew Marr and a foreword by Nicholas Serota.
