The Tate Museums in England - Tate Modern and Tate Britain in London, as well as the Tates in Liverpool and St. Ives - are experimenting with this Web channel as a method of presenting contextual information about artists and performers beyond what can be seen on the walls of the museum. Media presented through the channel includes "Videos", "Artist interviews", "Talks and symposia", "Work in focus", "Exhibitions", "Performance", and "Films by artists". Visitors can also select from playlists, such as "Editor's picks", "In the galleries", or "Artists' studios". It's all a good example of using the Web to re-shuffle and re-display content in multiple ways to appeal to multiple audiences. In just a few minutes of Tate Channel switching, it's possible to view David Byrne talking about his recent London exhibition (August 2009) "Playing the Building," see and hear comic book artist and singer Jeffrey Lewis sing the stories he has drawn, and watch Jeff Koons' giant silver balloon version of Rabbit inflate to be displayed as part of "Pop Life: Art in a Material World," shown at Tate Modern, October 2009 - January 2010.
