Art to Look for at the Tate Modern

Tomorrow when you're exploring the Tate Modern, keep an eye out for the following works by post-World War II British artists:

Anish Kapoor, Ishi's Light (2003)

Bridget Riley, Fall (1963)

Francis Bacon, Figure in a Landscape (1945)
These days the Tate Modern is concentrating on telling the story of modern art as a collective and global endeavor. Why do you think the Tate's curators have decided to highlight so few British artists? Why do you think they chose to focus attention on these three artists in particular?
