Tate Liverpool

In the 1980s Alan Bowness, then director of Tate, decided to create a ‘Tate of the North’, as the project became known. The new Tate Gallery at Liverpool opened to the public in May 1988. More than 600,000 visitors a year visit Tate Liverpool, cementing its position as a venue for major European exhibitions of modern art. Tate Liverpool is one of the four Tate galleries.
