Patricia Lankester appointed Chair of Tate Liverpool

Oh, I didn’t know there was a Tate Liverpool Council. How do I join?

Patricia Lankester, a Trustee of Tate since 2005, has been appointed Chair of the Tate Liverpool Council. Patricia joined the Tate Liverpool Council as a member in 2006, and will now take up the role of Chair, succeeding previous Chair Professor Jennifer Latto.

Tate Liverpool Council has 12 members drawn from a broad range of interest groups and is a non executive sub-committee of the Board of Trustees. It plays a vital role in the formulation and development of policy and programme for Tate Liverpool and makes recommendations to the board of Trustees on Tate Liverpool-specific policy issues, the overall shape of Tate Liverpool’s programme and the future development of the gallery.

Patricia Lankester said “I’m delighted to take up this important role as such an exciting time for Tate Liverpool and look forward to supporting the Directors and wider gallery team to deliver a vibrant programme for 2008 and beyond.
