A new twist on an old favourite as transformed Tate Britain reopens
Nick ClarkNow it has undergone a £45m transformation to prepare it for the 21st century, which involves “renewing” some of its lost grandeur and stripping back the layers that have left it “blunted”.
The new Tate Britain will this Tuesday be unveiled to the public, who will again be able to arrive through the refurbished main entrance that overlooks the Thames, with its grand neoclassical portico.
Penelope Curtis, director of Tate Britain, said the new gallery “opens up the Millbank entrance to reassert and enhance the original grandeur and logic of the galleries”. She said she hoped it would be a “clearer and more pleasurable” way for visitors to experience British art.
