Tate has closed all four of its galleries across the country including Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives, following latest government advice regarding the ongoing coronavirus crisis. A message on the Tate website reads: “Tate’s four galleries will be temporarily closed until at least 1 May, in line with advice from Public Health England,” while they said in a statement:
“We believe that access to art is a universal human right. Now more than ever, art can lift our spirits, brighten our days and improve our mental health. So whilst our galleries are shut, we’ll be sharing some ideas for how you can still enjoy the best of Tate online. We don’t know yet when galleries will reopen, but we look forward to seeing you when they do. Until then, stay safe and take care.”
Tate will be offering refunds or the chance to rebook any exhibition tickets, or the alternative choice to donate the ticket price to the organisation. More information surrounding events and memberships can be found on the Tate website FAQs.
