Tate is a group of four galleries: Tate Britain and Tate Modern in London, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives. Tate promotes the public’s enjoyment and understanding of British art, and of twentieth-century and contemporary art. It holds the national collection of British art and international modern and contemporary art which is shown at its four galleries and shared with other galleries and museums through an active loans programme. Tate takes a networked approach to working with partners across the UK. Networks support peer-to-peer exchange and collaboration on programmes as well as enriching what audiences can access locally. The diversity of locations, scale and context brings reciprocal benefits, and Tate is committed to continued UK-wide collaboration.
Tate’s national partnerships include:
- ARTIST ROOMS: Associates present exhibitions from the ARTIST ROOMS collection of over 1600 works by more than 40 international artists, jointly owned by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate. Anthony d’Offart established the collection in 2008, specifically to help young people explore the work of major artists through dedicated solo exhibitions in creative learning projects in their hometowns. His donation of 50 ‘ROOMS’ of art was one of the largest and most important ever made to a museum in Britain.
- British Art Network: comprising more than 550 institutional members from museums, galleries and academic partners, is a Subject Specialist Network with an annual programme of seminars and events.
- Plus Tate: 35 visual art organisations working together with generosity and collaboration as its guiding principles. The aim of the network is to increase audiences for modern and contemporary art through the development and exchange of ideas, skills and programmes.
- The Turner Prize: is presented by a partner institution outside of London every other year, alternating with Tate Britain.
