Tate Exchange

Tate Exchange is an open experiment; a space for an ongoing programme of events developed by artists, practitioners, and associates. It is a place where everyone is invited to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life, through art.

The custom built space within the gallery provides a comfortable and flexible place for you to get involved. Members of the public are free to drop in for a talk, enjoy a chance encounter with a pop-up work of art, watch a live performance, join in a workshop, and experience art in new and unexpected ways.
