Tate has announced that all four of its galleries will reopen from 17th May 2021 with a host of new exhibitions, commissions and displays. The EY Exhibition: The Making of Rodin will be unveiled at Tate Modern, as will Heather Phillipson’s much-anticipated commission at Tate Britain. Tate St Ives will open a major rehang of its collection displays and Tate Liverpool will host a group exhibition for this year’s Liverpool Biennial.

As the galleries reopen, every precaution has been taken to make the experience safe and enjoyable. To ensure people can keep a safe distance from each other, all visitors, including Members, will need to book a timed ticket in advance to visit the collection displays or exhibitions. Visitors will be able to shop for exclusive gifts and enjoy food and drink at all four Tate galleries, including wood-fired pizzas, ice cream, coffee and craft beers at Tate Modern’s new riverside pop-up.

Maria Balshaw, Director of Tate and Chair of the National Museum Directors’ Council, said:

‘I’m thrilled that Tate will be reopening next week alongside museums across the country. We know there is a palpable appetite out there for people to safely share cultural experiences, to feel connected to each other again, and to support the recovery of the museums they love. After a long and difficult winter, the arts and culture sector has never had a more important role to play at the heart of our communities.’
