This interactive timeline brings together images of over 3500 works of art by 750 artists. Simply touch the words you are interested in on the digital screen to read more about modern art movements, and to see connections between artists across time.

Designed by Oscar-winning visual effects studio Framestore, who worked on such feature films as Gravity and Guardians of the Galaxy, the 6.5 metre digital screen is made up of a series of touch-sensitive micro-tiles, across which a cascade of words and images appear.

The Timeline of Modern Art is part of Bloomberg Connects: interactive digital projects that connect you to art and artists. Visit the Drawing Bar on Level 1 of the Boiler House, the Explore Spaces in the Blavatnik Building, Levels 3 and 4, watch TateShots online and download Tate’s app for iPhone
