Tate St Ives has been transformed by a four-year building project.

The gallery reopens on Saturday after work to build a new extension.

The £20m addition has doubled the size of the building and provided space for educational activities and new studios

£20m
has been spent on the new extension

The extension has been built into the cliff face so it doesn't obstruct sea views.

The gallery will open with a major solo exhibition of sculptor Rebecca Warren, consisting entirely of new or previously unseen works.

This will open alongside a new large-scale display exploring the story of modern art in St Ives.
