About Tate St Ives
VISIT THE NEW TATE ST IVES
The transformation of Tate St Ives has earned it the prestigious award for Art Fund Museum of the Year 2018.
The gallery celebrates the international legacy of modern artists associated with this beautiful old fishing town.
The dynamic spirit of this artists? community, famed as a centre for abstract art from the mid-twentieth century, is reflected in a vibrant programme of exhibitions, displays and events, embracing the best of international modern and contemporary art.
After the second world war St Ives was home to some of the world's leading modern artists. Explore their history and legacy in this extensive display including the work of Ben Nicholson, Peter Lanyon, Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo. The display tells the story of their relationships to wider events in British art and international art histories featuring works from Mark Rothko, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Lubiana Himid.
The gallery is situated overlooking the stunning Porthmeor Beach and has breathtaking views over the rooftops of the old town out to sea.
BARBARA HEPWORTH MUSEUM AND SCULPTURE GARDEN
At the bottom of a steep cobbled hill in the middle of the town there exists a peaceful haven of calm. This tranquil green oasis is Trewyn Studio and garden, where the sculptor Barbara Hepworth came to live and work. Visiting the magical home and subtropical garden of one of Britain?s most important twentieth-century artists offers a remarkable insight into her outlook and work. The garden perfectly combines beautiful planting with Hepworth?s stone and bronze sculpture.
