ARTIST ROOMS Acquired jointly with the National Galleries of Scotland through The d'Offay Donation with assistance from the National Heritage Memorial Fund and the Art Fund 2008© Edward Ruscha

The three guiding principles for ARTIST ROOMS are that it is:

  • experienced through the framework of monographic exhibitions and displays;
  • shared with museums and galleries for audiences across the United Kingdom;
  • used to engage young people with the art of our time in order to inspire future generations

In founding the collection, Anthony d’Offay’s vision for ARTIST ROOMS was that great modern and contemporary art would be available to audiences nationwide, especially young people who are central to the ongoing programme.

ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is a partnership with Arts Council England, the Art Fund and Creative Scotland, making the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art available to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Government.

ARTIST ROOMS on Tour is supported by Arts Council England and the Art Fund
