We’ve long been speculating about the eagerly-awaited opening of the new Tate Modern – as one of our favourite London galleries, the news that it was getting a face-lift was met with much excitement. The project was introduced to increase the Tate’s capacity, and is the world’s ‘first gallery space dedicated to live art, film and installations’, in the form of a twisting chimney structure on top of the gallery’s existing ‘The Tanks’ space.

So, like the curious cats we are, on June 17th we sent our most artistic team member (graphic designer Gabby) to check it out. Here are some of her favourite snaps of the evening:
