Committees

LATIN AMERICAN ACQUISITIONS COMMITTEE

Established in 2002, the Latin American Acquisitions Committee (LAAC) is Tate’s first acquisition committee to proactively shift the museum’s art historical narratives beyond a US-Eurocentric canon. Through the involvement and support of LAAC members, over 300 works by more than a hundred different artists from the region have been acquired, either purchased through the Committee or received as gifts. These works enter the collection of one of the most visited museums in the world and are regularly shown at Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, and Tate St Ives. Tate also loans the works acquired by the Committee to major retrospectives, group exhibitions and biennials around the world.
