A dynamic programme that focuses on key questions facing art galleries and museums in the twenty-first century
Tate Intensive: Art Matters took place 9-14 July 2017. A diverse group of 28 museum professionals – from Armenia, Australia, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Germany, Ireland, Kenya, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Singapore, South Korea, Turkey, the US, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and the UK – came together for a series of activities and workshops led by contributors including Tate staff and other culture professionals.
Discussions held in the Tate Exchange spaces at Tate Modern were complemented by visits to exhibitions and collection displays at Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the South London Gallery.
The group tackled challenging and pertinent questions facing art institutions in the twenty-first century, including their social role, choices around content and canons, ethical issues and how to enact change.
