Among them, three of the 20 Most Important Art Museums in the world as per the 2017 Forbes magazine List.

Beyond your eyes

Tate Sensorium was an experimental project exploring whether taste, touch, smell and sound actually change the way we experience art.

There were four rooms with four works, each with various sensory experiences. Groups of four people at a time were allowed in to the paintings, each wearing a biometric measurement wristband monitoring electrodermal activity – perspiration, basically – to see how excited, or not, they got.

The sensorium was the winning project from the 2015 IK Prize, an annual competition rewarding ideas which use technology to enable the public to experience the Tate collection in new ways.

"art belongs to everybody and nobody . Art belongs to all time and no time. Art belongs to those who create it and to those who savour it.Art no more belongs to the People and the Party than it once belonged to the aristocracy and the patron. Art is the whisper of history, heard above the noise of time. Art does not exist for art’s sake: it exists for people’s sake.”



Julian Barnes. The Noise of Time
