Abstract

Tate in Space is an online commission for Tate. It was active from July 2002 until September 2003 and remains online in archive form on the Tate website. It is an artwork which proposes a 'development programme' for a Tate in Space and takes the form of an intervention on the main Tate Website. The site explores ways in which Tate in Space might extend visitor experience and engage new audiences. It is an arena for debate and reflection on the nature of art in space, raising questions about cultural and institutional ambition and the very human desires to observe and communicate.
