Over the last 55 years, Tate Members have made a remarkable difference and helped Tate acquire over 500 important works for the collection and, as a thank you, Tate would like to give you a little something back. Every two years, an artist represented in the Tate collection is invited to become the Tate Members commissioned artist. This unique commission was conceived as a way of recognising and celebrating the vital support Tate Members provide to the four Tate galleries.

We are delighted that Turner-prize winning artist Chris Ofili accepted the 2013/15 commission, following David Shrigley, Jim Lambie and Fiona Rae. He produced a suite of 10 works, which appear dotted around this website, featured on your Tate membership cards and on other bits and bobs sent to you throughout the year – as well as on display in the galleries.

Tate Members’ past commissioned artist, Fiona Rae’s work was featured on membership material from 2011 to 2013. Take a look at how her artist commission came together in the film below.

Art and artists are at the centre of everything Tate does and we hope you enjoy exploring Chris Ofili’s work, as well as our previous artist commissions; Fiona Rae, Jim Lambie and David Shrigley
