How can art make a difference to people's lives and society?

Institute of Philosophy at Tate Exchange 2018

Based at Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool, we work with over sixty associates to collaboratively produce a programme that explores the impact of art on individuals, communities, and societies. Each year we explore a theme and work with a Lead Artist to spark debate and engage with issues that matter today. This year we’re talking 'Movement' with artist Tania Bruguera, a role made possible by her selection for the Hyundai Commission. In our first year we explored 'Exchange' with Tim Etchells, and in our second year, 'Production' with Clare Twomey.

Whether you are an observer, commentator, researcher, creator, hacker, tweeter or just curious, join artists and organisations to explore the issues of our time. Drop in for a talk, join the conversation, enjoy a chance encounter and learn something new.

Find out what's happening today and this month at Tate Exchange – every day and week is different, and everything is free and open to all.

Tate Exchange Associates

The goal of Tate Exchange is for us to work with others in order to generate new perspectives, provoke debate, stimulate creativity and create new collaborations.

To acheive this, Tate Exchange is a platform for over 60 Associates from the UK and around the world, who explore in different ways the impact and social value of art. These Associates include arts and culture organisations, and charities to universities, healthcare trusts to community groups working within and beyond the arts. Their participatory programme of artist responses, workshops, activities and debates takes place throughout the year and they bring a collective programme that is brave, risk-taking, and fosters new thinking on the museum.
