  • Art Everywhere Meet British Art Map Tate Britain 2013

    Find 14 artworks in Art Everywhere on display at Tate Britain with this map

Billboards across Britain are now covered in art thanks to Art Everywhere. From Salford to Stepney, you can see works such as Millais’ Ophelia, Hockney’s A Bigger Splash and Ofili’s No Woman, No Cry, blown up big for everyone to see for free. 

There are 57 works on our streets, voted for by you, and we’re proud to say that 27 of them are in the Tate collection. So, in case you like what you see, we’ve made a little map of where you can find the originals that are on display at Tate Britain. If you’ve spotted a particular artwork you like, check if it’s in the slideshow above - if it is, you can use the map to find it.

Otherwise, perusing the BP Walk Through British Art circuit will take you through 12 of the poster-works - but if you’re short of time, the 1840 room is a particular big hitter, with Waterhouse’s The Lady of Shalott (the most voted-for work in the bunch!), as well as a Whistler, a Dadd and a Holman Hunt all on display. You can also see one in our Lowry show (Going to the Match), one in our Caulfield show (After Lunch), one at Tate Modern (Dorothea Tanning’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik), and the rest are either safe and sound in storage or on display elsewhere.  

Hurray for Art here, there and Everywhere.
