Tate Archive’s collection of audio-visual material includes:
- recordings of the lectures and conferences held in Tate’s auditoria
- oral history recordings of artists, particularly those relating to the British Library’s Artists’ Lives project (to which Tate provides curatorial support)
- films and videos donated by the artist being filmed or the film’s director or producer, which sometimes include offcuts not used in the final edited version.
Audio-visual items from the collection can be viewed using equipment in the Hyman Kreitman Reading Rooms.
