Tate to reopen later in July

TATE Liverpool plans to reopen on 27 July 2020.

Guided by the latest official advice, Tate is currently working on its preparations to welcome the public back. To manage numbers and ensure everyone can keep a safe distance from each other, all visitors, including members, will need to book a timed ticket online in advance. Tickets will be available from next week at tate.org.uk alongside the latest information and guidance on how to visit. Visitors can follow Tate’s social media or register for email updates to hear details as and when they are confirmed.

Maria Balshaw, Director, Tate said: “We’re all looking forward to welcoming visitors back. Art and culture play vital roles in our lives, and many of us have been craving that irreplaceable feeling of being face-to-face with a great work of art. Our number one priority remains that everyone stays safe and well, so we will continue to monitor the situation in the weeks ahead, work closely with Government and colleagues, and make all the changes necessary for a safe reopening.”

Helen Legg, Director Tate Liverpool, said: “We are excited to be bringing the much-anticipated Don McCullin exhibition to Liverpool in the autumn and to be able to extend it well into 2021 so visitors have a longer chance to immerse themselves in his extraordinary images. It is also wonderful to reopen the gallery with a new commission, Ferocious Love, by Mikhail Karikis, who worked with young people to explore themes of community and togetherness as we step into a changing and uncertain future. Commissioned before the pandemic, it could not be more resonant in this moment.”
