i love museums for modern art. apart from the – obviously – great art, they are usually housed in fantastic architecture, go hand in hand with great design and they have the best ever gift shops. the moma in san francisco wowed me with its collection – especially the huge mural by one of my favorite artists parra – but it is the supercool building and rooftop terrace that makes it such a truly unique location in my opinion. and of course it helps to have a blue bottle coffee bar, too.
i am not a huge fan of contemporary art museums because most of the time i have no idea what i am looking at! love it to visit museums with my artists because they can tell me so much about the artists, makes it a lot easier! last one i visited was hockney and maus! next one will probably be tate modern
i love the tate modern, i’m sure you’ll enjoy it. i’m looking forward to revisiting the moma in ny next week: my all-time favorite :)
MOMA was on my list but I had time too short in SF last year. owow I have to visit it again :). But I visited De Young Museum, another great modern architectural piece with a great bookshop inside :).
