Tate Museum goes international on cruise ships – Guardian

MUSEUM GLOBALISATION While the Guggenheim and the Louvre are building high-profile outposts in Abu Dhabi, the UK museum chain Tate is looking at a different approach to establishing a greater presence overseas and at home, by creating partnerships with existing institutions.
“Nor will it be limiting its reach to dry land” says The Guardian. In a three-year deal with P&O, a scheme called Tate Cruises has recently been established involving lectures to passengers by Tate experts. “It is a good opportunity to develop new audiences,” said the Tate’s director of media, Will Gompertz, adding that the outreach programme was “also financially beneficial to Tate”.
