Background

The aim of Tate is to increase public awareness, understanding and enjoyment
of British art from the 16th century to the present day, and of international
modern and contemporary art.

  
The vision for 'Transforming Tate Britain: Building, Archives, Access' is to
provide a model for transforming the way that people can access, engage with
and learn about Britain's cultural heritage by using archival sources. We will
do this through large scale digitisation of Tate's rich archive collections
and associated learning and outreach programmes. In tandem we will transform
the original 19th century building to meet the needs and expectations of 21st
century audiences.

  
We will digitise 52,000 items from 52 archive collections, selected to give a
broad picture of art and artists in Britain during the 20th century. We will
create the technical infrastructure to integrate this archive material with
65,280 digitised artworks from Tate's collection already available online. The
project is designed to ensure that audiences have the tools to enjoy and
contribute to this heritage and engage in dialogue with Tate and each other
about it.

  
You can find further information about Tate Archive and our collections at
http://www.tate.org.uk/research/archive
