London, 30th April 2002

TATE Magazine is to be relaunched in September 2002 as a visually dynamic and accessible authority on the arts internationally and in Britain.

Published by Condé Nast, the new TATE magazine will feature all aspects of art, architecture, film, theatre, performance, fashion and other arts subjects, with a separate section dedicated to art events and exhibitions relating specifically to the Tate galleries Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate St Ives and Tate Liverpool and the interests of the six million people who visited them last year. Reaching more than 75,000 readers internationally, including Tate Members and through news stands, It will also be accompanied by a linked development on Tates website:

TATE is intended to present specialised art forms in an accessible way to a wide, non-specialist readership. With writing of the highest standard, Tate will involve influential, international writers, artists and design innovators, and topics covered will reflect a dynamic attitude towards art and artists in many fields.

From 1988 to 1995, Robert edited and produced publications at the Anthony dOffay Gallery in London.
