Capital is a project for Tate Modern by artists Neil Cummings and Marysia Lewandowska. It unfolds as a series of encounters between two iconic institutions, Tate and the Bank of England, and the economies they animate.



The project was inaugurated with the issue of a gift - a limited edition print, distributed at Tate Modern and the Bank of England Museum, with an accompanying book published by Tate. The project also included a series of three seminars. The first of these seminars looked at the concept of the gift and the way that gift-giving generates an economy of obligation and counter-obligation.
