This exhibition will explore British art through the theme of migration from 1500 to the present day, reflecting the remit of Tate Britain Collection displays.

From the 16th- and 17th-century Flemish and Dutch landscape and still-life painters who came to Britain in search of new patrons, through moments of political and religious unrest, to Britain's current position within the global landscape, the exhibition will reveal how British art has been fundamentally shaped by successive waves of migration.Cutting a swathe through 500 years of history, and tracing not only the movement of artists but also the circulation of visual languages and ideas, this exhibition will include works by artists from Lely, Kneller, Kauffman to Sargent, Epstein, Mondrian, Bomberg, Bowling and the Black Audio Film Collective as well as recent work by contemporary artists.
