'Meet the New Tate Britain'

November 20 2013

Video: Tate

A wonderfully pointless, but cleverly made, little video from Tate to mark the completion of the newly refurbished Tate Britain.

In The Art Newspaper, an interview with Tate Britain director Penelope Curtis reveals she may yet want to increase the gallery space upstairs. Excellent.

Where next for Tate Britain? Curtis does not rule out an extension, but she says that it is a virtue that the building is “not too big”. That said, she thinks that the basement could yield more display space. “The upper floor could then be devoted to the collection, with temporary exhibitions on the lower level,” she says.
