Tate’s extensive programme of collection loans to other institutions supports its mission to increase the public’s knowledge, understanding and appreciation of art.
By lending artworks, Tate aims to:
- increase public access to the collection and reach new audiences
- contribute to distinctive exhibitions and public programmes in Britain and internationally
- promote British art abroad
- support artists
- foster a spirit of collaboration and exchange between museums and galleries.
