Winchester School of Art at Tate Exchange

Winchester School of Art became an Associate of Tate Exchange in 2017 and staged its first main event, Building an Art Biennale, in May 2018. The second, Itinerant Objects, took place in May 2019.

Tate Exchange is described as a ‘place for all to play, create, reflect and question what art can mean to our everyday’. Working with over 60 Associates from the UK and internationally, it offers a platform for all involved to explore how art and society meet. ‘Exchange’ is central to what Tate Exchange offers. The Associates represent a wide range of interests, skills and audiences and include arts and culture organisations, charities, universities, healthcare trusts and community groups working within and beyond the arts.
In contributing to the annual participatory programme at Tate Modern in London, typically comprised of artist responses, workshops, activities and debates, Winchester School of Art seeks to offer a critical, public forum to explore and engage with the research and educational practices of its staff, students and collaborative partners. To date, this has included working with the Kochi Biennale Foundation, Trinity Winchester, Southwest University China, the Gujral Foundation, and Winchester’s Saturday Club. In seeking to engage a wide range of people with both the practices of art and design and critical issues of the day, Winchester School of Art is committed to working with Tate Exchange to help deliver what it describes as a ‘collective programme that is brave, risk-taking, and fosters new thinking on the museum’.
