Tate St Ives
Cornwall, TR26 1TG
The stunning seaside arm of the Tate gallery group provides fantastic views of the coast and a rolling programme of exhibitions.
Home of post-war British Modernism, the artistic legacy of the town provides the foundations for Tate St Ives. The gallery was built to celebrate the artists as well as the surroundings and atmosphere that inspired them; its unique architecture recalls the white relief works of the artist Ben Nicholson, and the unexpected twists and turns of St Ives itself.
Tate St Ives opened in 1993, on a spectacular site overlooking Porthmeor Beach, and has a lively and varied international exhibition programme, with three seasons of exhibitions each year. Exhibitions include major figures in British and international Modern and contemporary art.
