Tate St Ives to Reopen with All New Collection Displays

17 May 2021 Book tickets

Tate St Ives is set to reopen from May 17th in line with the next stage of the Government’s roadmap. It will be opening with a major rehang of its collection displays which will be the first rehang since 2017 when the museum was completely refurbished.  The new displays, Modern Conversations, will spotlight five key artists associated with the modern art networks of St Ives and West Cornwall: Alfred Wallis (1855-1942), Marlow Moss (1889-1958), Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975), Partou Zia (1958-2008) and Bob Law (1934-2004). The displays will unveil the stories and legacies of modern art in St Ives and beyond. Led by Sara Matson, this edition is curated with Sally Noall, assisted by Helen Bent, Giles Jackson and Rachel Smith.

Anne Barlow, Director of Tate St Ives said: “I'm delighted that Tate St Ives will reopen with all-new collection displays. Modern Conversations will explore 100 years of art, celebrating how West Cornwall has welcomed and inspired artists and revealing new connections to artists from around the world. We hope that visitors will discover many great artworks for the first time as well as seeing some of their favourites in a new light.”

Timed tickets are required for all visitors which can be booked on the Tate St Ives website. There is a one-way route around the gallery, guiding you through rooms in the collection and exhibition safely. All visitors are required to wear face coverings in the galleries, apart from those who are exempt.
