Tate Exchange – Where art and society meet

Come Together, Central Saint Martins (c) Dan Weil

Tate Exchange is a space and programme at Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool where we ask, ‘How can art make a difference to people's lives and society?’

We do this with the public and with over eighty Associates, from across the UK and the world, and across the arts, education, health and wellbeing and community development, 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 'Power' with international collective Hyphen-Labs. In our first year we explored 'Exchange' with Tim Etchells; in our second year, 'Production' with Clare Twomey; and last year we explored 'Movement' with artist Tania Bruguera, a role made possible by her selection for the Hyundai Commission.

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. Drop in for a talk, join the conversation, enjoy a chance encounter and learn something new.

Tate Exchange Associates

We work with our Associates to together generate new perspectives, provoke debate, stimulate creativity and create new collaborations. Our Associates all 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.
