What is Transnational?
Transnational is a way of understanding, researching and curating that encourages the idea that art, artists and art histories are connected beyond their countries of origin. The word ‘transnational’ encourages us all to challenge and revise dominant art histories by highlighting the global exchanges and flow of artists and ideas.
What do we do?
The Centre’s vision is to redefine Tate’s existing collection of art and offer new perspectives on global art histories. We will expand Tate’s existing commitment to developing its collections and programmes beyond Western Europe and North America.
In this film, hear about the Centre’s engagement with Tate’s collection, displays, exhibitions and public programmes, and how research is integrated into the workings of the museum.
