Tate Britain

Have You Seen?

“Have you seen the Heatherwick, darling? It almost makes one want to get on a No.38, especially as it goes to Hackney”.

The crowds at Thomas Heatherwick’s exhibition this summer, epitomised the London cultural scene. Fabulous the exhibition was too, albeit crammed into a V&A space the size of a 5-a-side football pitch. We glided around, doing our excuse-me shuffles that were not mitigated by timed tickets.

After Picasso

The earlier blogpost Before Picasso examined the journey from Pimlico Underground Station to the Tate Britain. The author is indebted for this blogpost to the excellent booklet produced as part of the Picasso and Modern Art Exhibition. The following blog effort is a reflection on the show and its London connections.

Before Picasso

The environs of Pimlico Tube Station can confuse the visitor. Roads splay off in an arbitrary arrangement. A sign indicates your exit to get to Tate Britain. It is eerily quiet.You move forward cautiously and weave round the curve of Bessborough Street. Wham bam; you are back in noisy London, with the thundering traffic of Vauxhall Bridge Road.
