Lights and corridors - Nude/Action/Body temporary exhibition

Tate Modern Gallery est un important musée d'art moderne et contemporain. Elle est située à Bankside, un quartier de la rive sud de la Tamise, non loin de London Bridge. Elle est installée dans l'ancienne centrale électrique de Bankside : un bâtiment d'un grand intérêt architectural situé en face de la Cathédrale Saint-Paul.

Tate Modern stands at the heart of London, linked to St Paul's Cathedral by the new millennium footbridge. The building is a remarkable combination of the old and the new.

The original Bankside Power Station was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott who was also the architect of Battersea Power Station, the Liverpool Anglican cathedral and the famous British red telephone box.

The building consists of a brick-clad steel structure, constructed from more than 4.2 million bricks. The height of the central chimney was limited to 325 feet (99 metres) in order to be lower than the dome of St Paul's Cathedral.
