Tate first opened its doors in 1897 and was home to a collection British art. Just over 100 years later, Tate now has four sites in London, Cornwall and Liverpool housing works from 1500 to present day amounting to over 70,000 pieces. Tate Liverpool or ‘the Tate of the North’ opened in 1988 and is dedicated to showing modern art and encouraging new younger audiences to visit. Tate St Ives opened in 1993 and overlooks Porthmeor Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Tate Modern opened in 2000 and is located at the former Bankside Power Station and with this opening for contemporary and international art, Tate Britain at Millbank was able to return to it’s original function as a national gallery for British art.
Working with the Tate, both Britain and Modern is a pleasure. Targeting tourists in the busy summer months to those arts connoisseurs and cultural sponges the rest of the year. Tate’s branding is incredible and makes it a joy to work on their distribution for both seasonal guides as well as their one off exhibitions.
