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.
