The new Tate Modern opened to the public on Friday 17th of June 2016, bigger and better than ever before. More international, diverse and engaging, not to mention the new Switch House building which is an art piece in itself, designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron.

The opening event Future Late was curated exclusively by 15-25 year olds from Tate Collective London as part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Focusing on the acquisition of international work in the last few years has resulted in an incredibly diverse new collection for the Tate, with over 800 works by over 300 artists from all over the world including Chile, India, Russia and Sudan.

One of the highlights of the Tate’s renewal is the integration with technology. Partnering with Bloomberg Philanthropies, Tate have created new interactive spaces and an app to give better access to the museum’s collection.
