Tate St Ives
Tate St Ives is re-opening on 14 October when it launches its new gallery, exhibition and display.
The launch of the new Tate St Ives sees the completion of a four year building project to double the space for showing art. For the first time, Tate St Ives can provide a permanent presence to those iconic 20th century artists who lived and worked in the town. Modern Art and St Ives celebrates the role of St Ives in the story of modern art. This is combined with a new programme of large-scale seasonal shows beginning with British sculptor Rebecca Warren’s first major UK exhibition in eight years.
Tate St Ives is part of the Tate family of venues that includes Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Tate Liverpool and opened in 1993 to celebrate the rich history of modern art in St Ives. Today that history continues to inspire its seasonal exhibitions of international modern and contemporary art, presented within the gallery’s dramatic spaces with breath-taking views of the beach.
Exhibition admission includes free daily guided tours, access to online books in the Studio Resource Room, family trails and activities. For more information visit tate.org.uk/stives.
Tate St Ives also manages the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden, which gives a remarkable insight into one of the 20th century’s most influential sculptors.
