Some fun facts about the Museum : Aims & Objectives

  • The Tate is governed by a Board of Trustees and a director.
  • It is a non-departmental public body that is an exempt charity.
  • The Tate, like any other organisation has a range of aims and objectives.
  • The primary mission is to make art accessible to the public. Specifically, this includes British art from the 16th century onwards, which is displayed at Tate Britain. And international Modern and Contemporary art, which is displayed at Tate Modern and other Tate galleries.
  • As far is the permanent collection is concerned, it is the museum’s responsibility to conserve and care for each of the artworks. So as to preserve them for now and for future generations. These are, after all, invaluable markers of human cultural evolution.
  • Moreover, documentation and record-keeping is an ancillary function. The Tate must maintain authentic records concerning the artworks in their collection. And as far as possible, these documents are also made available to researchers and scholars.
  • Finally, mounting relevant exhibitions for the public is of the utmost importance. This ensures that even the general public – who may not know much about art – are able to understand it.

A Final Thought :

It has not even been 2 decades since Tate Modern first opened its doors to the public, yet it is already one of the most important spaces for Modern & Contemporary art in the world.
