The programme of displays will feature the work of major figures such as Walter Sickert and Barry Flanagan, as well as pieces by the Systems group and the archive of Nimai Chatterji.

These regularly changing displays focuses on work from the Tate collection to bring to light particular themes or artists.

This new season of displays will open with Sickert and Photography (4th July- 17th April 2017), which will offer visitors an insight into how artist Walter Sickert was inspired by photography as a source for his paintings.

Meanwhile, also opening on the 4th July (on display until Autumn 2016), Barry Flanagan’s film Sand Girl will be shown at Tate Britain for the first time and is a new addition to the Tate’s collection. Made in 1971, the film reveals how sculpture can be expressed in film.

On the 18th July, artist group Systems will be present  work by the group’s core members from their most significant moment – an Arts Council touring exhibition in 1972–73 that originated at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. (On display until 17th April 2017).

Finally, a display celebrating the acquisition of Nimai Chatterji’s archive will go on public display from the 1st August to the 2nd April 2017. It is a chance for the public to see the depth and range of his work.
