The Exhibition programme at Tate St Ives Tate St Ives has a lively and varied international exhibition programme with three major international exhibitions each year. A selection of works from the St Ives School of Artists (who were seen as being at the forefront of British Modernism) is always on display. The main exhibition shows artists who influenced the School or who have been influenced by them and our regular programme changes ensure that if you visit more than once a year you will see something different every time. You can find further information on the exhibition programme at the Tate Website ( www.tate.org.uk ). We provide Teachers Notes for each Tate St Ives exhibition. These are suitable for teachers and all group leaders and can be obtained by: downloading from the website (see Tate St Ives, Events & Education, Teaching Resources) request via e-mail [email protected] request via telephone, 01736 791114

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
