Tate Liverpool: We Have Your Art Gallery

We Have Your Art Gallery

Tate Liverpool: Display


Tate Liverpool is throwing open its doors for a unique experiment that will see the gallery’s main exhibition space given over to a collaborative project. Tate Collective, a youth art initiative by and for young people aged 15–25 will host a three week free art school open to all.

Turner Prize winners Assemble staged a kidnapping of Tate Liverpool, and have supported Tate Collective, to enter into ransom negotiations with the gallery’s curators and directors. These have been conducted via a series of ransom notes where ideas were exchanged, bartered over and remodelled. An agreement was reached to transform the gallery space into a temporary art school; putting creativity at the heart of public space.

Tate Collective will produce and deliver the programme of activity for the art school with something for everyone to enjoy and take part in. Assemble will support Tate Collective as they custom build their new art school space, giving everyone the opportunity to learn with artists.
