Open to the public since 1897, Tate is one of the world’s leading art institutions and among the most visited in the United Kingdom. It consists of a network of four museums: Tate Britain and Tate Modern in London, Tate Liverpool, and Tate St Ives in Cornwall. The four museums share a national collection of British art from 1500 to the present and international modern and contemporary art, comprising more than seventy thousand items. Tate, like many museums, has in recent years transformed itself in order to remain relevant in the twenty-first century, refurbishing and extending Tate Britain and Tate Modern, launching the Tate Exchange collaborative learning programme, and organising international partnerships and collaborations. In this upcoming M+ Matters | Keynote, Maria Balshaw, Director of Tate, discusses the significance of these projects and the institution’s overall strategy in the context of a global sociopolitical climate that is shifting more rapidly than ever. More broadly, she explores the challenges and opportunities facing museums as they strive to continue to find a balance between reflecting current situations and remaining impartial, inclusive, and open.
