It was disappointing to read the article which describes allegations that Tate denies (‘They moved to silence and erase’: artists who sued Tate speak out, 7 August).
I know Tate regrets the way in which the relationship with these artists ended and has apologised to them for it. Given that much remains disputed, I’m pleased that the situation was resolved before costs mounted for all concerned.
Tate Exchange – the wider programme of which this was a part – was always intended as an open-ended experiment. Learnings from it have now informed activities across the whole organisation. Far from ending in “acrimonious circumstances”, it has led to the creation of new posts dedicated to community and partnership work, which will strengthen Tate’s ability to successfully deliver new projects of this kind in future.
