The EY Tate partnership will help Tate to realise its ambitious arts programme across Tate Modern and TateBritain, with EY’s support being extended through corporate memberships at Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives and at many of the Plus Tate partners around the country, from Bristol to Cambridge, Manchester and Birmingham.

EY’s commitment will also help Tate realise three major autumn exhibitions over the next three years. Entitled The EY Exhibition, they will start this October with Paul Klee: Making Visible at Tate Modern. This will be the UK’s first large-scale Klee exhibition for over a decade, bringing together around 100 works by this playful and radical master of European Modernism.

Tate and EY play an important part in the economic and working life of the UK. Annually Tate reaches an audience of over 21 million people through its activities, including 7 million visitors to its galleries in the UK. EY continues with its strategy to invest for growth. Last year the firm reported £1.6bn UK revenue, saw a 10% increase (1,200 jobs) in headcount and maintained its position as one of the UK’s top ten graduate employers.

This collaboration between two internationally-recognised institutions has the potential to help build a better working world for their visitors and clients respectively and the communities in which they work. www.tate.org.uk
