Tate Britain’s central galleries will be transformed again by a large-scale immersive art work

Every year Tate Britain invites an artist to create an exciting new commission for the grand spaces of the Duveen Galleries at the heart of the building. In 2020 the commission will be by British artist Heather Phillipson.

Previous artists have included Mark Wallinger, Martin Creed, Fiona Banner, Simon Starling, Phyllida Barlow, Pablo Bronstein, Cerith Wyn Evans, Anthea Hamilton and Mike Nelson.

Tate Britain Commission: Heather Phillipson is supported by AGC Equity Partners, with additional support from the Tate Britain Commission: Heather Phillipson Supporters Circle and construction support from Unusual Rigging Ltd.
