Tate Exchange Planning 2018-19 - Theme Movement ...

  • Planning for Tate Exchange 2018-2019 will start in September 2018 and we could be back at Tate Exchange (Tex) from as early as November 2018, however we are not committing to a large event at this stage. Our collaboration with Tate Exchange will be different, we hope to have a more informal ongoing exchange/residency over the year which could include small informal regular interventions as well as the larger events (depending on funding/support).
  • The 18/19 Tex theme we will be Movement and the lead artist for Tate Exchange we will be working with is Tania Bruguera who is the artist commissioned to install the Turbine Hall art work for 2018/19. Start thinking about the Theme and send any ideas you have to c.follows@arts.ac.uk
