Bringing together artworks from all over the world, Tate Liverpool prides itself on staging an ever-evolving programme of unique and incredible collections. With past artists featured including Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol and Claude Monet, we’re always looking forward to what the next Tate Liverpool season will bring to our doorstep.
Tate Liverpool’s gallery offers large displays of work from the National Collection free of charge. The Collection features the work of artists including L.S. Lowry, Lynda Benglis, Nicholas Hlobo and Bridget Riley making Tate Liverpool the perfect place to visit your favourite artworks, as well as discovering something completely new.
