On Thursday March 22nd 2007, from 9:15–18:30, the final "Inside Installations" seminar will be webcast live on the Tate's website. A video archive of the conference should be available two to three weeks after on the Tate Online Events website.

From the Tate's website:
This conference explores the idea that artists’ installations draw into sharp focus the way in which contemporary artistic practice can potentially shift the organisational logic of the museum.

Where is the dividing line between installation artist and curator? How should installations be conserved and reinstalled? How does this practice affect notions of artistic authorship? This conference looks at places of friction and resistance between contemporary art and traditional museum conventions, and considers how the roles of conservator and curator are evolving in response to particular artistic practices.
