New Tate Modern: Last week Tate Modern revealed plans for the new Tate Modern, read more here. One of the most exciting developments of the new Tate Modern will be the launch of an ambitious ‘open experiment’ called Tate Exchange. Occupying an entire floor of the new Switch House building, it will open up the museum – and the world of art – to new audiences. The project will allow other organisations and members of the public to participate in Tate Modern’s creative process for the very first time, running events and projects on site and using art as a way of addressing wider issues in the world around us.


  • Artists and associates to programme a new space at Tate Modern
  • Exploring wider social issues through art
  • An ‘open experiment’ with over 50 partner organisations

Tate has invited more than 50 organisations from a wide range of fields well beyond the gallery’s normal reach to become associates of Tate Exchange. They range from a small charity in the Welsh Valleys to a community radio station in East London, via universities, healthcare trusts, volunteer groups and many more. This group will help to programme and run the new space. Working in a spirit of generosity, openness, trust and risk, the associates will collaborate with one another around an annual theme inspired by the art on display at Tate Modern. Tate Exchange will in time expand its group of associates to include more partners from the UK and abroad, while consistently seeking to engage audiences which are new to the museum.

Starting on 28 September 2016, the Tate Exchange programme will run for nine months of the year and will be developed by Tate staff and invited artists and practitioners in conjunction with associate institutions, partners and the public. The first year’s theme will be ‘exchange’ itself, led by the artist Tim Etchells, alongside other participating artists such as the Guerrilla Girls. The programme will explore new ways of thinking about art and its value to society, and examine the very notion of the museum in today’s world and its changing relationship with the public. The idea is to open the museum to creative contributions, to encourage new perspectives, test ideas, engage in, debate and create a platform to help everyone explore current issues through the medium of art.

Anna Cutler, Director of Learning, Tate said:

“Our visitors don’t see museums and galleries as places to retreat from the real world – they want to use these places as somewhere to explore what their world really means. We are looking to involve groups from other sectors, and especially visitors themselves, to actively work alongside artists in the co-creation of new projects and new ideas.”

The new Tate Modern will open to the public on 17 June 2016. An iconic new building has been created to the south of the existing gallery to house new kinds of art and introduce the public to artists from around the world. The new development will transform Tate Modern, creating more spaces for displaying the collection, performance and installation art and learning, allowing visitors to engage more deeply with art, as well as creating more social spaces. The vision for the new building is the redefinition of the museum in the twenty first century, integrating learning, display and social functions.
