Tate Modern

World-class, international modern art in the transformed Bankside Power Station. Sun-Thur 10am-6pm; Fri-Sat 10am-10pm. Admission free; charges for special exhibitions.

To 9 Feb: Nam June Paik. Promising to be 'a mesmerising riot of sights and sounds', this visionary has been obsessed with technology-influenced art for decades.

To 15 Mar: Dora Maar. Discover the work of this esteemed photographer, who made her name with surrealist works, before moving on to painting later in life.

To 5 Apr: Kara Walker. The latest artist to take over the gallery's huge Turbine Hall space is this Californian postcolonialist, who has created a 13m-high water fountain called Fons Americanus. Walker uses her distinctive sculptural stylings to highlight the atrocities of colonialism: the towering structure is inspired by the Victoria Memorial outside Buckingham Palace.

From 13 Feb to 11 May: Steve McQueen. Discover the short films of the Oscar-nominated, London-born director behind 12 Years a Slave.
