Director’s Circle

Launched this year, the Director’s Circle will support a variety of special projects selected by Dr Nicholas Cullinan.

Contributing to the evolving dialogue created by our contemporary projects, commissioning programme, exhibitions, and historic Collection, the Director’s Circle support the Director’s vision across the Gallery.

Now is a particularly exciting time to be part of this conversation. Our world-class collection continues to grow, our exhibitions programme is internationally renowned and in 2020, the Gallery will embark upon an exciting new phase of redevelopment.

The Director’s Circle enjoy several bespoke events each year, curated by the Director and guided by the strong relationships the Gallery continues to foster with practising artists and leading cultural figures.

You can join the Director’s Circle for an annual donation of £10,000. To find out more, please contact Rummana Naqvi, Head of Individual Giving [email protected] or on 020 7321 6644.
