In Conversation with Frances Morris, Director of Tate Modern

About

To accompany RAMM's Women Artists exhibition, we present an evening of wide-ranging discussion about the art world today. Despite the many advances made by women in recent years, they are still under-represented. What can we do to address this?

Frances Morris has played a key role in the development of Tate, joining as a curator in 1987, becoming Head of Displays at Tate Modern (2000–2006) and then Director of Collection, International Art until April 2016 when she was appointed as Director, Tate Modern.

She has worked continually to re-imagine Tate’s collection and has been instrumental in developing its international reach and its representation of women artists. Frances was jointly responsible for the initial presentation of the opening collection displays at Tate Modern in 2000, which radically transformed the way museums present the story of modern art. She has curated landmark exhibitions, many of which were large-scale international collaborations, and three major retrospectives of women artists including Louise Bourgeois in 2007, Yayoi Kusama in 2012 and Agnes Martin in 2015. Frances Morris most recently curated Giacometti in 2017.

Frances holds a BA in History of Art from Cambridge University and an MA in History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. She is a Board member at Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh and a Board member of CIMAM.

Frances will introduced by Dr Sue Tate, Research Fellow, University of the West of England and Freelance Art Historian.
