Redesigning 500 years of British Art

May this year saw the re-opening of 9 galleries at Tate Britian, after extensive refurbishment to rebuild the galleries to modern standards, meaning that a greater range of art can now be displayed due to floor reinforcement and modern temperature and humidity controls.

The re-hanging of the collection means you can experience a walk through of British art, from the 1500’s to the present day. Two rooms are devoted to Henry Moore’s sculptural works and there are also dedicated displays of works by William Blake and JMW Turner.

The next phase of the refurbishment is set to open in November and includes the Rotunda and Millbank entrance designed by architect Caruso St John. The gallery has released artists impressions of what we can expect to see at the re-opening – and we think this is definitely on our list to visit in November!
