This Collection display, running the length of galleries on the western side of the building, allows visitors to walk through a chronological display of 20th-century British art at Tate Britain.

Hung in a purely visual way, designed to engage attention through the inherent qualities of individual works of art, and in juxtaposition with other pieces across a broadly chronological run, these displays form the back-bone to the gallery experience.
