Tate Liverpool is set to reopen to the public on July 27 it has revealed today.
The Royal Albert Dock attraction closed in March alongside other arts venues at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.
Now it, along with Tate Britain, Tate Modern and Tate St Ives, will reopen its doors for visitors from the end of July.
Social distancing measures will be put in place and all visitors, including Tate Members, will need to book a timed ticket ahead of their arrival. Tickets will be available online from next week.
Tate Liverpool will reopen with a new audio-visual installation by artist Mikhail Karikis titled Ferocious Love, reflecting young people’s views of an environmentally uncertain future.
The Don McCullin retrospective exhibition, which was due to take place this summer, has moved to the autumn instead, opening on September 16 and running until May 9. 2021.

It means the previously scheduled autumn programme will not take place.
Tate Liverpool Director Helen Legg said: “We’re excited to be bringing the much-anticipated Don McCullin exhibition to Liverpool in the autumn and to be able to extend it well into 2021 so visitors have a longer chance to immerse themselves in his extraordinary images.
“It is also wonderful to reopen the gallery with a new commission, Ferocious Love, by Mikhail Karikis, who worked with young people to explore themes of community and togetherness as we step into a changing and uncertain future. Commissioned before the pandemic, it could not be more resonant in this moment.”
