Preston’s Harris Museum and Art Gallery has joined forces with the Tate in London.

The Harris is one of 16 new organisations to join the Plus Tate, a contemporary visual arts network designed to expand the strength of arts outside the capital.

Plus Tate is a wonderful opportunity for regional venues, like the Harris, with a commitment to showing new art

Plus Tate was launched to share collections and expertise more widely across the country.

Alex Walker, head of arts and heritage at Preston City Council said: “Tate has done more than any other organisation to put contemporary visual arts firmly at the centre of British cultural life, developing new audiences and inspiring debate.

“Plus Tate is a wonderful opportunity for regional venues, like the Harris, with a commitment to showing new art, to work with and learn from Tate, and other partners, to enable more people to enjoy contemporary art.”
