Tate Liverpool announces reopening date


Tate Liverpool will reopen its Albert Dock gallery on Monday, July 27, with its postponed Don McCullin exhibition reprogrammed for September.

All four Tate venues will again welcome visitors on the same date, with tickets for everyone even members to be booked online in advance.

On reopening, the Merseyside gallery will be unveiling new work by Greek/British artist Mikhail Karikis, created with protest choir The Liverpool Socialist Singers.

His audio-visual installation Ferocious Love reflecting on young people’s views of an environmentally uncertain future. The choir has interpreted the sound of wildfires, flooding and other extremes of weather, to be shown alongside video created with students from Birmingham School of Art.

Talks, workshops, performances and film screenings will be replaced with a new programme of online events for the duration of this year.

Helen Legg, Tate Liverpool director, said: “We are excited to be bringing the much-anticipated Don McCullin exhibition to Liverpool in the autumn and to be able to extend it well into 2021 so visitors have a longer chance to immerse themselves in his extraordinary images.

“It is also wonderful to reopen the gallery with a new commission, Ferocious Love, by Mikhail Karikis, who worked with young people to explore themes of community and togetherness as we step into a changing and uncertain future. Commissioned before the pandemic, it could not be more resonant in this moment.”

The much-awaited exhibition of work by world famous war photographer Don McCullin will now run from September 16, 2020 to May 9, 2021.

The majority of pieces shown are taken from his successful show at Tate Britain earlier this year, which attracted 180,000 visitors – but will include some pictures exclusive to the Albert Dock gallery including photographs of 1960s Liverpool.

Tickets will be available from next week at tate.org.uk alongside the latest information and guidance on how to visit. Updates will be posted on Tate’s social channels.
