Intermedia Art

New Media, Sound and Performance


The Intermedia Art programme ran 2008-10. The Intermedia Art pages also contain the archive of Tate's netart projects from 2000 onwards.

Tate's Intermedia Art programme focussed on art that engages the use of new media, sound and performance. Presenting a selection of artist commissions, events and broadcasts; supported by artist interviews, written articles and discussions that inform or comment on the work and its context.

The featured artworks may be created with newer or older networked and time-based media such as video, radio, computer technologies or the internet. They may involve performance or discussion, straddle a variety of media, or even fuse media in the creation of new hybrid, intermedia forms.

The programme also addressed art that comments on the social and political implications of new technology and practices that challenge traditional ideas of the art object; including work that is process-driven, participatory or interactive.
