Tate Britain | The Squash




Tate Britain is a museum located in the City of Westminster which showcases a range of artworks & hosts various exhibitions. Tate Britain tasked Direct Painting Group with creating the tiled background for Anthea Hamilton’s art exhibition ‘The Squash’.


Planning was paramount in ensuring our team was capable of delivering the project within the established 2 weeks time frame; this included co-ordinating the tiling works with the other on-going tradesman’s works. Once a programme of works was developed, our expert tiling team was ready for their site induction & commencing of works.


The completed exhibition included the installation of over 7,000 Johnson white ceramic floor tiles which were laid to span the length of the Duveen galleries & to serve as a casing for the large erected box-like structures. This was a unique project to be involved in & it incorporated various moving parts, however through our experienced & dedicated team we were able to deliver a seamless finish within the initially established time-frame.
