London's Tate Modern and Tate Britain galleries are open from today (Monday 27 July), following a long stint shut under lockdown.
Free permanent collections, featuring artists from David Hockney to Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, are once again accessible to art lovers, while major exhibitions that've been put on ice over the past few months are now extended.
As part of Covid-19 safety measures, all gallery visitors (members included) must book a timed ticket in advance to visit the collection displays or exhibitions.
Maria Balshaw, Director at Tate said:
While you've been away, we have worked hard to ensure our spaces are safe and accessible for everybody. We have also extended many major exhibitions and commissions, all of which feel as powerful and relevant today as they did when they first opened.
London's major cultural institutions are slowly but surely reopening, with National Gallery, Barbican Art Gallery and Royal Academy of the Arts already up and running.
Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives also reopen today.
