London’s new and improved Tate Modern attracted a record 143,000 visitors during its opening weekend. The institution, which reopened to the public on Friday, June 17, underwent a major renovation and expansion helmed by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. The redesign, which included adding a new building dubbed The Switch House, increased the size of the museum by sixty percent. Tate Modern has a number of highly-anticipated exhibitions on deck, including a Georgia O’Keeffe retrospective that will open on July 6.
