In July 2013, Tate and EY entered into a major arts partnership which has now been extended until 2022. The partnership marked a major step-up in EY’s support and investment in UK arts and culture making EY one of Tate’s largest corporate partners. By confirming their support until 2022, this phenomenal partnership represents an extraordinary commitment to the arts and to Tate’s mission.

The exhibitions which have followed at Tate Modern and Tate Britain have been hugely successful and widely acclaimed, with well over one million visitors to date. The partnership began with The EY Exhibition: Paul Klee in 2013, followed by The EY Exhibition: Late Turner in 2014, The EY Exhibition: Sonia Delaunay and The EY Exhibition: The World Goes Pop in 2015, The EY Exhibition: Wifredo Lam in 2016, and The EY Exhibition: Impressionists in London in 2017. Following The EY Exhibition: Picasso 1932 – Love, Fame, Tragedy at Tate Modern this year, The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain will open at Tate Britain in 2019 and further shows will be announced in due course for 2020 and 2021.

EY has over twenty-five years’ experience of supporting the visual arts in the UK, and this unique relationship is an example of how EY teams with other organisations that share their purpose and commitment to building a better working world. The EY Tate Arts Partnership helps Tate to realise its ambitious arts programme across Tate Modern and Tate Britain, with EY’s support being extended through corporate memberships at Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives and at many of the Plus Tate partners around the country.

EY’s commitment has helped Tate realise seven major exhibitions to date.

Steve Varley, Chairman and UK & Ireland Managing Partner, EY, said:

We are delighted to announce that we will be continuing The EY Tate Arts Partnership for a further three years. EY has a long history of supporting the arts and, over the last six years, we’ve seen some hugely successful EY Exhibitions across Tate Modern and Tate Britain. At EY, our corporate purpose is to build a better working world. It is at the centre of everything we do, and the decisions we make. A key part of this is ensuring that we play our part in promoting diversity and contributing to a buoyant economy. Supporting the arts and culture sector is one of the ways we are proud to demonstrate this commitment. It is a huge privilege to work with Tate and we look forward to building on the success of this unique relationship for a further three years.

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate, said:

By 2021 EY’s commitment to Tate will have been going strong for nine years. That kind of long-term partnership is hugely important, allowing us to be ever more ambitious and confident in our programming. The EY Exhibitions have been critical and popular successes, showing major artists in a new light and building on new research about key moments in art history. I look forward to this partnership enabling many more fantastic shows in the years to come.
