Tate Gallery Liverpool, Albert Dock, Liverpool (0151-709 3223) open today

In case you hadn't heard, the Tate Gallery of the North has just reopened after a pounds 6.96m (count 'em) redevelopment scheme. So what is there to see in all these tarted-up spaces? Well, there are three major exhibitions on at the moment. The Tate's entire holdings of Cubist art have left London, for the first time, to be shown in The Spirit of Cubism - some 40 paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages by Picasso, Braque et al. Urban is a sample of works from the National Collection of Modern Art relating to representations of city life. And the new top-floor galleries at the Tate make as good a starting point as any for artstranspennine98 - a series of commissioned art works being shown at sites, indoors and out, between Liverpool and Hull. It's the largest exhibition of its kind ever to have been organised in England. Is that enough to be getting on with?
