Modern art education

The Tate galleries have added some interactive works in their exhibition that actually jump a few hurdles in engaging audiences and thank god for that.

The inclusion also of both interactive games and interactive screens as well a lot of opportunities for feedback is another great addition to the gallery experience.

The feedback area for The Turner Prize 2008 was an amazing inclusion and frankly much more memorable than the actually prize itself. The level of engagement with these interactive spaces was what really surprised me. The usual cynicism that goes along with arts education was completely removed and people genuinely wrote what they thought (good and bad), watched videos, drew and played and read the information available to them.

This was so much more fun that my childhood gallery visits. Thankfully art and fun is finally being combined!
