Have you ever visited museums of contemporary art? For me it is one of the key places that I like to visit in big cities.
What I enjoy the most in these museums, is the fact that I can interpret the works and try to guess by imagination what the authors wanted to capture . In fact in more than one occasion with friends is that everyone had a different perception of the same work and the best of it is to give your opinion after the analysis.
Some of the museums I have visited are these ones:
Tate Modern, London.
This museum is known internationally and is one of those places that impresses even without having gone inside the building. It is located behind the famous gallery South Bank, south of the Thames and there you can find works by artists of the twentieth century, such as Pablo Picasso, Joseph Beuys and Mark Rothko. The admission to the museum is free.
One of the works you must visit is July 1972 Francis Bacon triptych. It is one of the most striking and I recommend you to visit if one eday you visit this museum.
