  • Prime Minister David Cameron visits Turner Contemporary
Yesterday, the Prime Minister David Cameron visited Turner Contemporary. His visit was prompted by the inauguration of the London Array Offshore Wind Farm which the gallery hosted. The Prime Minister said:

"I am delighted to have had the chance to visit Turner Contemporary. The gallery is a fantastic example of the role the arts can play in regeneration. I wish them every success as they approach their millionth visit."

The event formed part of a partnership between London Array and Turner Contemporary, which has included sponsorship of the 2012 exhibition Turner and the Elements. The Prime Minister and VIP guests from Europe and the Middle East were able to view the offshore wind farm from the gallery’s large, sea facing windows as well as enjoy the summer exhibition, 'Curiosity: Art and the Pleasures of Knowing.'

While at Turner Contemporary the Prime Minister was given a tour of the gallery by our Director Victoria Pomery and our Chairman John Kampfner. The millionth visit to the gallery is expected this August.
