Tate had formed a close link with St Ives when it took over the management of the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden in 1980. By the middle of the decade it was decided a gallery should be built in St Ives and in 988, a building was chosen on the site of a former gasworks overlooking Porthmeor Beach. The Tate Gallery, St Ives opened in June 1993 and a project to refurbish and extend Tate St Ives was completed in summer 2017. Tate St Ives is one of the four Tate galleries.
