We’ve enjoyed a fantastic programme of Patron events this year, in the company of fellow Patrons, artists, curators and directors. We’ve been on curator-led tours of major exhibitions at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and travelled further afield to visit Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. We’ve gone behind-the-scenes to artist’s studios and enjoyed private views of major London shows at the V&A and the Hayward Gallery. 

We look forward to seeing you soon during our autumn events programme! Look out for updates and special Frieze week events in our e-newsletters.
