Dear List,

Perhaps I should kick off with a timely question which has occurred to me as I look at the new Tanks programme at Tate Modern, phase one of the new buildings there. It has a stated remit of exhibiting from the collection, and the programme "Art in Action" has been chosen by curators from Live Art, Film, and Education. There is new commissioned work, but also exhibits such as Suzanne Lacey's Crystal Quilt project which is displayed as documentation. Tate also has a day-conference on "Materialising the Social"  http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern-tanks/conference/insideoutside-materialising-social

So, is this a good example of certain artforms living in the archives and library as well as the collection, as Steve Dietz says? Does Live Art offer useful examples of how new media can be materialised and live on in exhibitions? Is new commissioning a way to make up for the fact that exhibiting from an archive is "only documentation'?   There must be good new media examples out there of solutions to these problems? Bring these examples to the list! 

Yours,

Beryl
