01 Loans policy

Works from the Collection can be loaned to institutions in the UK and internationally, subject to the following conditions:

  • The Borrower must confirm agreement from the artist, or their Estate, prior to requesting a loan. We will not lend a work to a third party without the artist’s consent.
  • Formal loan requests should be made in writing to the Chief Curator. Requests should be made as far in advance as possible, with a minimum of six weeks’ notice.
  • Our policy is not to lend to commercial exhibitions or exhibitions in commercial spaces.
  • The work will not be released until completed and signed loan forms together and insurance certificates have been received by the Chief Curator.
  • The Borrower is responsible for insuring all loaned works door to door.
  • There is an administration fee for all loans, to be paid prior to transportation.
  • Condition reports must be completed in English upon unpacking and repacking the work.
  • For certain works, we may ask the Borrower to pay for any display requirements (framing, glazing, plinths), crates and packaging or courier’s expenses.
