i was reading that london with its many galleries is second only to NYC in matters of contemporary art. this is why i have been contemplating many times the option of studying history of art (modern option) while here. lately i found a highly regarded institute where my colleague's wife is professor: the courtauld institute of art. this post is not about my study perspective though but a brief article to present the new artwork at the tate modern gallery: an installation of slides which are both impressive interactive sculptures (visitors can slide on them!) and a potential alternative mean of transport, according to carsten höller.
i went to the tate last w/e but it was so packed that i did not enjoyed it and ended up spending most of my time at the shop where i purchased a beautifully painted children booklet and a cheecky tale of charlie and lola. next time i will be thrilled of sliding like a child!
