ARTIST ROOMS is an extraordinary collection of international modern art recently acquired jointly by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate, through the very generous donation of Anthony d’Offay, with the assistance of the Heritage Memorial Fund, The Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments.
The collection of over 700 works has been acquired to provide a new national resource of contemporary art available for exhibitions in museums and galleries across the UK.
At the heart of ARTIST ROOMS is the concept of individual rooms devoted to particular artists, so that their work can be seen and appreciated in depth.
ARTIST ROOMS will transform the nation’s collections of contemporary art. Its aim is to strengthen displays of contemporary art and create exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the UK so as to inspire new audiences, especially of young people.
21 British museums and galleries from Llandudno to Fort William will show masterpieces of contemporary art in 2010 thanks to ARTIST ROOMS, Anthony d’Offay’s gift to the nation made in 2008.
