The Tate Modern is by all means one of the highlights of living in London. Whether you go every week, every month, every new exhibition or once a year it does not matter. It is great just knowing its there. The building alone is a day out and approaching it from every angle a new adventure. I often feel the exhibitions are hit and miss, although recently their dedication to abstract modernism and adoration of constructivism has filled me with much joy.

The Tate has once again set about creating a show which will give audiences opportunities to experience some of the greatest contemporary arts practices and will utilise the Turbine Hall in a ground-breaking and exhilarating way. Subsequent to the experiential qualities of both Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project and Carsten Holler’s Test Site we are soon to be witness to potentially one of the greatest living practitioners of contemporary dance. Anyone lucky enough to catch MMM, I Do or Come, Been and Gone at the Barbican will be delighted to hear that Michael Clark and his Company have become the latest Artists in residency at Tate Modern.

Presenting a number of Michael Clark Company’s filmed works, archived footage, designs by Clarke, Leigh Bowery and Charles Atlas and performances both of a new work by the company and a Turbine Hall 100-strong dance piece running over the August bank holiday. This truly is a Tate commission not to be missed.
