Tate, St Ives

Tate, St Ives

Visit the iconic Tate St Ives, situated in a stunning location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a stone’s throw away from Porthmeor Beach. Part of the Tate family of venues that includes Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives opened in 1993 to celebrate the rich history of modern art in St Ives. Today that history continues to inspire its seasonal exhibitions of international modern and contemporary art, presented within the gallery’s dramatic spaces with breath-taking views of the beach.


REBECCA WARREN - ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS - Until 7 Jan                                              Rebecca Warren's first major UK solo exhibition in eight years opens the new Tate St Ives.             A significant British artist, Warren’s exuberant, roughly-worked sculptures and neon vitrines engage with the canon of art history. Warren first came to prominence in the 1990s and exhibits widely in Europe and the United States. This new exhibition will draw connections between her practice to date and the geographical context and artistic legacy of St Ives.

VIRGINIA WOOLF - AN EXHIBITION INSPIRED BY HER WRITINGS - 10 Feb - 29 Apr 2018.    Discover art from 1850 to the present, inspired by the writing of this celebrated author. 

PATRICK HERON - 19 May - 9 Sept.                                                                                         The exhibition will stretch from Heron’s early work in the 1940s to his death at the very end of the 20th century, showing the full evolution of his vibrant abstract paintings.

NASHASHIBI/SKAER - 29 Sept 2018 – 13 Jan 2019                                                               Travel to Gauguin's Tahiti through the work of two British filmmakers

MODERN ART AND ST IVES - Explore the history of modern art in St Ives with their new display. For the first time, Tate will be able to dedicate spaces to exploring the history of modern art in St Ives, giving key artists a permanent presence in the town where they lived and worked. This new display will follow those artists across the 20th century, revealing their relationships to international art histories. From the unique perspective of St Ives, visitors will be able to bridge geographical and chronological boundaries and discover new connections through familiar artists.


Tuesday to Sunday 10.00–16.20. Exhibition admission includes free daily guided tours, access to online books in the Studio Resource Room, family trails and activities. See website for prices. 

Tate St Ives also manages the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden, which gives a remarkable insight into one of the 20th century’s most influential sculptors.
