Description

SIR NICHOLAS SEROTA SPEAKS: THE ART MUSEUM AS FORUM

There has been a significant shift in the way that art museums work with artists and engage the public over the past 30 years. Sir Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate from 1988 to 2017, will discuss the implications of these changes for museums and their place in society with special reference to Tate’s evolution. Serota was closely involved in the creation of Tate Modern, the adoption of a wider international perspective and the development of Tate as a place for debate on wider social issues.




ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Sir Nicholas Serota is Chair of Arts Council England and a member of the Board of the BBC. He was Director of Tate from 1988 to 2017. During this period, Tate opened Tate St Ives (1993) and Tate Modern (2000, and an extension in 2016), redefining the Millbank building as Tate Britain (2000). Tate also broadened its field of interest to include 20th-century photography, film, performance and occasionally architecture, as well as collecting from Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The national role of the Gallery was also developed with the creation of the Plus Tate network of 35 institutions across the UK and Northern Ireland. In recent years Serota has curated or co-curated exhibitions of Donald Judd, Howard Hodgkin, Henri Matisse, Gerhard Richter and Cy Twombly.
