Tate Modern is amazing!!!!

January 10, 2007

I went to the Tate Modern yesterday. All of the art is so incredible and overwhelming, plus it had a gorgeous view of the Thames. So, I really resonnated with a few pieces. There was one by an artist, whose name I forget, who died of AIDS in 1994. He created the piece after AIDS had attacked his nervous system and blinded him. It is a very thick multi-colored oil, in which he used his fingers to scrawl the words: “AIDS is fun” which is the title of the work. He was trying to counteract homophobia etc. attached to the disease. It was so powerful. I will find the artist’s name and post it…
Also, I loved the work of Beatriz Milhazes. Here are some of her pieces.
