Curatorship

The online video introducing the Tate Modern and Open University study days on `Museums and Art History' held on 24 June 2006 has been made available on the Learn Online section of the Tate's website. Following a short introduction by Marko Daniel, Curator, Tate Public Programmes, Steve Edwards, Lecturer in Art History, Open University discusses `Displaying Modern Art' which focuses on displays at Tate Modern. The second session by Nigel Warburton, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Open University, considers `Juxtapositions' and how they affect the viewer. The last session by Frances Morris, Curator and Head of Displays at Tate Modern, reviews the thematic rather than chronological structure of the gallery`s display.
