The Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) on Artillery Street has been chosen by Tate to join Plus Tate, the contemporary visual arts network, which is expanding by sixteen institutions across the UK.
CCA join a further two of Northern Ireland’s leading galleries in the programme including The MAC Belfast and Golden Thread Gallery Belfast.
The three galleries from Northern Ireland join the original cohort of eighteen partners, plus the four Tate galleries, to double the size of the group.
In 2010, Plus Tate was launched with the objective to share collections and expertise and build a network which would use Tate’s resources to strengthen the contemporary visual arts ecology in the UK.
Matt Packer, Director of CCA in Derry, commented, “We are delighted to have been selected to become part of the Plus Tate network on the basis CCA’s exhibitions and public programmes. CCA is a collaborative organisation at heart, and we welcome the opportunity to further connect Derry~Londonderry with other leading contemporary arts organisations across the UK.”
