Happy 10th Birthday, Tate Modern!

Here’s a trip down memory lane, courtesy of farnishk on YouTube. Remember Olafur Eliasson’s The Weather Project back in 2003-2004, which brought a massive sun into Tate Modern’s incredible Turbine Hall?

It was certainly one of those fantastic, unforgettable Tate Modern shows – the kind the art gallery has become renowned for over the last 10 years.

As Tate Modern celebrates a decade of fantastic art this weekend with No Soul For Sale: A Festival of Independents, we wonder if you could share your favourite Tate Modern memories with us in the comments below.

Did you love Louise Bourgeois’ giant spider? That mindbending crack (Doris Salcedo’s Shibboleth)? Carsten Höller’s incredible art-as-amusement-park slides? Or are you still in awe of the Rothko Room? Let us know!

    I liked the big crack (he he!)in the Turbine Hall a couple of years ago. And the Kandinsky exhibition – 2006 I think.

    I loved the slide! It was brilliant watching straight-laced visitors squealing in delight as they shot out the other end!

    The crack was great too – especially how creative it made people with their photos. Like this Guardian reader’s photo:
