What is Modern British Art?

Fundraising Talk

With Dr Chris Stephens, Head of Displays & Lead Curator of Modern British Art, Tate Britain.

Join Chris Stephens as he discusses the history of Modern British Art – when did it all begin, who was the first Modern British Artist, is it really British? You will be taken through some of the critically acclaimed displays in Tate Britain’s Meet 500 Years of British Art, with a particular focus on the rooms that take visitors from 1910 up to the 1960s. This talk will highlight key figures in the history of British art as well as introduce artists who have a strong relationship with Tate Britain.

Advance booking required. Talks last for approximately 45 minutes with a short time for questions.

Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the evening talks. Wine and juice are available to purchase at evening talks.

Proceeds from this fundraising talk will go toward funding our innovative learning programme which includes family workshops, the Young Curators Project and community initiatives such as Art in Mind which provides a creative outlet for people with dementia and their family or supporters. They also help us to continue to provide the high quality programme of exhibitions such as the upcoming ‘Damien Hirst: New Religion’.
