About ARTIST ROOMS
ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned and managed by National Galleries of Scotland and Tate on behalf of the nation.
The guiding principle of ARTIST ROOMS is the concept of individual rooms devoted to particular artists. The collection of over 725 works includes major groups of work by seminal artists.
The aim of the collection is to create a new national resource of contemporary art that will be shared with museums and galleries throughout the UK so as to inspire new audiences, especially of young people. ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is a partnership with Arts Council England, The Art Fund and, in Scotland, Creative Scotland, making the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art available to galleries throughout the UK.
