Tate is a family of four galleries: Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives. Tate is responsible for the National Collection of British art from 1500 and international modern and contemporary art from 1900. Tate's Collection of 65,000 works of art embraces all media from painting, drawing, sculpture and prints, to photography, video and film, installation and performance. The Collection is displayed at Tate's four galleries and through loans to temporary national and international exhibitions and long loans.
Tate's mission is to increase public knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of British, modern and contemporary art through access to the Collection and an inspiring programme. This includes Tate's award-winning website Tate Online, Schools and Community programmes, Interactive events and activity around the galleries.
Tate's Collection seeks to represent significant developments in art in all areas covered by its remit with artworks of outstanding quality and importance. The representation of British art encompasses work by artists defined by their contribution to its history and development rather than simply by nationality. Tate represents international modern and contemporary art from a global perspective and has recently expanded its holdings of work.
