About Tate Modern
Tate Modern is one of four Tate galleries around the UK, and part of a wider network of partner institutions – the Plus Tate network – which champion the visual arts in the UK. Tate manages a growing national collection of over 70,000 works of art, acquired and cared for on behalf of the public and shown in venues throughout the UK and across the world. Tate Modern is the world’s most popular museum of modern and contemporary art, attracting around 5 million visitors each year. Located in the former Bankside Power Station of the United Kingdom, it opened to the public in May 2000. In June 2016 the new Switch House building added 60% more display space to Tate Modern.
Tate Modern aims to become a truly inclusive organisation with a workforce and audience as diverse as the communities it serves. This is fundamental to Tate’s future success and contribution to culture and society in the UK continually. Tate Modern wants its workforce to be more representative of all sections of society at all levels in the organisation. The range of perspectives and experience diversity brings is an asset and Tate Modern wants to create an inclusive, welcoming environment for visitors, artists and all those who work at Tate.
