The current exhibit in the Turbine hall of the Tate Modern is a series of slides by Carsten Holler. Tickets to ride the slides are free and the exhibit is on until April 2007.

I often have difficutly in interpreting modern art; indeed, I find the Bankside Power Station building that houses the Tate Modern to be more impressive than its contents… However, in this case, I like this installation – all the kids coming down the slides were really happy!

Anyway, this certainly beats the previous exhibit of white boxes.
