Unearth the hidden talent of Tate Staff at an exhibition showcasing the passion and work of those who keep the gallery running

Responding to Tate Exchange’s theme for year 3, Movement, The Inside Job Collective have been invited to take over Tate Exchange and pull together the work of staff across all Tate sites into one exhibition. The exhibition showcases the often-hidden skills of staff members at Tate and allows you to see the impact of working with Tate’s collection has had on their practice.

Approaching the different strands of Movement through varying mediums, there will be a dynamic series of live performances, workshops, installations, film and 2D works, as well as an evening of specially curated music and performances from staff for the August edition of UNIQLO Tate Lates.

Whether you want to drop-in to a comic-book workshop, share a confession on the place of religion in a secular institution or join a storytelling walk along the Thames, we have loads activations to get involved with. You can also hear the experimental work of sound practitioners, explore the diverse photography, painting and sculptures put together by staff and watch a collection of curated films touching on migration, physical movement, stillness and journeys.

This exhibition has been curated and organised by The Inside Job Collective for our colleagues and to share their work alongside the rest of Tate’s collection.
