History of Art Research Seminar Series

Hosted by the Department of History of Art and the Humanities Research Centre (HRC)

Over the last ten years Tate’s International Collection has grown from one reflective of Western European and North American art history to one which embraces narratives from across the world. This talk will explore how curatorial and art historical research has enabled this transformation and how it continues to underpin the acquisition and display of the collection and the exhibitions that form part of an integrated programme at Tate Modern.  Research at Tate is essentially practice-led and public-facing, intended to contribute to the scholarly community outside the museum, but to have tangible outcomes in terms of programmes and to enrich the knowledge and experience of the public.
