Every year since 1988 Tate has commissioned a leading contemporary artist to design its Christmas Tree. The tree is situated in the Rotunda at Tate Britain. From 1991 the commissioned artist has also created the Director’s Christmas Card. This section of the website traces the history of the Christmas Tree and documents the associated objects, cards as well as the press and public reaction to the work.
