Tate Modern gallery reorganises its collection

London's Tate Modern, the monumental art gallery housed in a converted power station, has reorganised its collection for the first time since opening in 2000, adding new works arranged by theme, rather than chronology. Visual arts editor Tim Teeman paid a visit. "I don't want to get you too excited, but half the great rehang of Tate Modern's permanent collection is, um, already hung and available to see right now. Quietly at Christmas, two of the four main areas devoted to the ambitious project were opened. More than 40 per cent of the works have never been seen before, while 20 per cent are newly acquired. ... For every crowd-pleaser there are a few head-scratchers. No attempt at explaining the history of modern art can ever be encyclopaedic (or even successful), but this looks more adventurous, rigorous and involving than most."
