Tate Exchange / Tate Papers – Call for Abstracts
Tate Exchange is a platform at Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool that explores how art makes a difference in society. It does this through collaboration with a cohort of Associate organisations and the public, in response to an annual theme, and through a participative, process-led and socially engaged art.
For its fifth anniversary year, Tate Exchange will be publishing a group of papers in the Tate Papers online journal.
Tate Papers is an open access online research journal that publishes scholarly articles on British and modern international art, and on museum practice today. Leading specialists from around the world contribute to Tate Papers, as do researchers working at Tate, and the journal aims to showcase a range of disciplinary approaches to the study of art and museums. Tate Papers has over 209,000 unique visits annually.
