Tate Liverpool is the home of the national collection in the north of England, and presents a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions and collection displays of international modern and contemporary art from around 1900 to the present day. Since its inception Tate Liverpool has been at the forefront of socially engaged artistic practice through its Learning programmes. From the early 1990s artists have been working with Tate Liverpool, young people and adults within our local communities, collaborating across the city region for positive social change through art.
Tate Liverpool’s new vision and strategy builds upon this history and revolves around the notions of co-creation and collaboration between artist, community and gallery. From 2016, we aim to make co-creation with artists and our public a core part of Tate Liverpool’s primary exhibitions programme. This framing, within the critically and conceptually loaded space of our main exhibition galleries, offers a space for artistic and curatorial experimentation with a mutually equal dialogue, and continuously unfolding public practice.
