ARTIST ROOMS is a collection of over 1,600 works of contemporary art. It was founded in 2008 when Anthony d’Offay donated 50 ‘ROOMS’ of art to Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland in one of the largest and most important gifts of art ever made to a museum in Britain. ARTIST ROOMS includes major bodies of work by 40 international artists. The guiding principle is to show the work of each artist in dedicated solo exhibitions. ARTIST ROOMS is owned and managed jointly by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland, and the collection is made available to audiences across the United Kingdom through a programme of exhibitions, developed in collaboration with partner galleries and museums known as ‘Associates’.
The ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008 with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments. ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Art Fund and, in Scotland, the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
ARTIST ROOMS is aimed at young people – primarily those aged 13–25 – and there is a range of activity happening around the tour for young people to get involved in.
