Tate iPhone/iPod guide

Visitors to the Tate Liverpool in the UK can now use their iPhones and iPods during a current art exhibition, according to an announcement. The gallery says that for a display of paintings by Gustav Klimt, people have access to a multimedia tour, representing a mix of currator commentary with music, archival films, photos of Klimt and behind-the-scenes exhibition footage. The guide is claimed to be the first of its kind in the UK.

To access the media, iPhone and iPod touch owners can connect to a "klimt" Wi-Fi network within the Tate, which also provides features like a timeline; a Touch can be rented for 3. Owners of clickwheel iPods only have access to the video portions of the tour, which must be downloaded in advance through iTunes or the Tate website. The Klimt exhibition closes on August 31st.
