Modern Art Failed Me Again

Visited the Tate Modern and the National Gallery today!

Modern art is either hate or love. I loved the fashion exhibition at Istanbul Modern but hated (maybe hate is too strong a word) the Tate. It's quite boring with no exciting installation. The only thing that caught my eye was a oversized silver platter (and by oversized, I mean bigger than a baby cot) with silver utensils, kitchenware and cutlery carelessly scattered most on one half of the platter. The description akin it to rice covering half the plate - the deeper meaning was so many people have utensils but yet starve. How apt. How sad.

On the other hand, I loved the paintings at the National Gallery! One can learn so much about fashion and not from the paintings.
