Tate Britain opened on 21 July 1897 as the National Gallery of British Art. However, from the start it was commonly known as the Tate Gallery, after its founder Sir Henry Tate, and in 1932 it officially adopted that name. Before 2000, the gallery housed and displayed both British and modern collections, but the launch of Tate Modern saw Tate's modern collections move there, while the old Millbank gallery became dedicated to the display of historical and contemporary British art.
Tate Britain is the national gallery of British art from 1500 to the present day. As such, it is the most comprehensive collection of its kind in the world.
Located on the River Thames, Tate Britain is a magnificent, iconic building which offers versatile gallery and architectural spaces to entertain alongside the some of the most prestigious British art collections from 1500 to present day.
Arguably one of the most fabulous fashion parties of the year, the ELLE Style Awards attracts an incredibly chic list of fashion icons. By using simple, minimalistic neon lighting throughout the venue, we created an exceptionally cool and contemporary setting.Read the full case study
