The Tate Modern occupies the converted Bankside power station and is the
space for one of the world's premier collections of 20th-century art.
When the power station was converted to the Tate Modern, it became home to
an ever expanding collection of contemporary art. The regular
rotation of pieces and the installation of numerous special exhibitions
result in compelling displays that change constantly.
Contrary to tradition, the
Tate Modern organizes its displays by theme rather than chronology or
school, a practice which cuts across movements and mixes up media.
