Tate St Ives presents modern and contemporary art, often created in or associated with Cornwall. Its location in St Ives, with dramatic views across the town and harbour to the east and Porthmeor Beach to the north, provides a unique opportunity to view work in the surroundings in which, in many cases, it was actually created. At the heart of the programme of displays and activities is a body of work for which the town of St Ives is internationally known – the modernist art produced by artists associated with the town and its surrounding area from the 1920s onwards. The gallery also presents work by contemporary artists, often responding to the gallery's displays or to the broader Cornish scene. The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden opened in 1976 and is part of Tate St Ives. Tate St Ives is open every day from March to October, and closed Mondays at other times. Admission is free for Tate Members, Patrons and people under 18. For ticket prices, opening times and display information please check the website.
