Ideas Depot – Tate exhibition

Ideas Depot is a new display that has been co-curated with primary school teachers across the city. Discover major works from the Tate collection by artists including Anya Gallaccio, ​Salvador Dalí and Chris Ofili. Central to this display is a belief that art plays a meaningful part in people’s day-to-day lives and intellectual curiosity.

Through art we can always learn something new – about history, the world and our place in it. Works will be swapped in and out as the primary schools in residence pick and choose new ones from the art stores and develop links to the primary curriculum.

The display has developed alongside a joint research project with Edge Hill University’s Faculty of Education, focused on developing a ‘schools in residence’ programme.
