What we do
Collection Care Research addresses the many challenges related to the conservation, management and care of Tate’s collection.
The programme of research pursues questions that relate to areas of museum practice such as conservation, collections management, archive and library practice, records management, art handling, photography and other ways in which the collection is documented or represented.
Collection Care Research solves practical problems, shares new knowledge about artworks, develops new tools for practice, facilitates knowledge exchange and makes sources available for further research. It is outward-looking and interdisciplinary, and often involves collaboration and partnership with a range of national and international organisations.
