For the first time, Tate St Ives will be able to give a permanent presence to those iconic 20th-century artists who lived and worked in the town, demonstrating the role of St Ives in the story of modern art. This will be combined with a new programme of large-scale seasonal shows, beginning with British sculptor Rebecca Warren’s first major UK exhibition. The new gallery, sunk into the cliff alongside the original building, designed by the award-winning Jamie Fobert Architects, will allow Tate St Ives to stay open all year round for the first time. With a public garden on its roof, the new building will also add a collection care studio, loading bay, staff offices and visitor facilities. The original building will now be dedicated to a display exploring modern art in St Ives and its relationship with the wider world. Find our more about the new Tate St Ives from the Tate’s website.
