    Turner’s legacy as a visionary who bridged the gap between traditional and contemporary art and his sense of enquiry continues to inspire our innovative exhibition, events and learning programme.

    Sadly, John Crofts died in 2009 before he was able to see this concept realised. The commitment, hard work and enthusiasm of many individuals over the years has ensured that the dream of Turner Contemporary has been made a reality.

    In 2010, we became an independent charitable trust.

    We look forward to welcoming you to Turner Contemporary.

     “Turner Contemporary promises to become an exciting new voice in Margate and the country’s broader cultural landscape. Its programme will appeal to diverse audiences and will explore relationships between the art of the past and that of today.” Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate
