Tate Modern Oil Tanks and Tate 2A dramatic new development at the Tate Modern opens in the summer of 2012 as three 30x7 metre oil tanks display art in live form. The giant underground chambers have remained unused since the power station was decommissioned in 1981 and will now be incorporated into Tate's new annexe, playing host to new audio and performance works, installations and film. Anonymous contributors have helped to raise 70% of the 215million pound cost and the tanks open as part of the†London 2012 Festival, the showpiece finale to the Cultural Olympiad. The development will still not be complete - two concrete galleries are also being added with completion date expected to be in 2016.
