Attention all Great British Art Debate fans. It is with sadness that we announce that the project is about to come to an end! We have had a great 4 years and created some fantastic debate around Britishness and Art.
Tate LABEL marked one of the last large GBAD events of the year, taking over Tate Britain with collaborative creativity and pumping baselines. The Great British Art Debate and Tate Collective spent a joyous day repositioning how artists can represent Britishness whilst working in response to the Family Matters Display.
To celebrate the opening of The Tanks at Tate Modern, Tate hosted UnderCurrent festival from 16th to 27th August over the summer. Focusing on sub-culture, underground art and the under-represented this festival saw Tate Collectives work with artists to fill The Tanks with a mixture of installation, intervention, music and live events.
To mark the release of Pocket Art Gallery, The Great British art Debate would like to invite you to take part in a little bit of fun. We are launching a competition to see who can take the most impressive photograph with Pocket Art Gallery.

When Greg Sullivan and I began to think about the Family Matters display we were excited at the opportunity to explore changing ideas about the family over the centuries and hang contemporary works alongside historic art. Bringing the many strands of the show together in a coherent hang was a challenge – how were we to exhibit contemporary photographs, archive photo albums, public submission photographs, oil paintings, sculpture and video art alongside each other in a way that did them all justice?
