Tourist Attraction in London: Tate Britain National Gallery of British Art
Tate Britain is an art gallery part of the Tate Museum complex in the United Kingdom, and other tunnels are Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives. It is located in London, in the street of Millbank. It was opened in 1897 under the name of the National Gallery of British Art, renamed Tate Gallery in 1932 and was renamed Tate Britain when Tate Modern was opened in 2000. It is devoted to both contemporary and past British art. Much of the exhibition space is used for historical collections of British art and some contemporary works. The gallery also organizes temporary exhibitions and retrospectives on British artists. The Clore Gallery is a museum wing, built in 1986 by James Stirling, which houses works by William Turner. Tate Britain and Tate Modern are connected by a cruise ship service operated by a boat decorated with a motif taken from Damien Hirst's work. Every three years the gallery sets up a Triennial on contemporary British art. Annually Tate Britain hosts the controversial exhibition for the award of the Turner Prize; are exhibited works by four young British artists (under 50 years) selected by a jury presided over by the director of Tate, Sir Nicholas Serota. The event lasts all year and the prize is awarded in December by a famous guest. Every year, the event is widely covered by the media because of the exhibition of "innovative artworks" that cause controversy and numerous controversies. Tate Britain tries to reach the younger audience with the Late at Tate Britain initiative every first Friday night of the month, with reduced entrances and special exhibitions with live music and live performances.
