The December issue of CR sees our next Month In The Life Of special (following August’s A Month In The Life Of A Graphic Designer). This time we are going client-side. Will Gompertz, director of Tate Media and in charge of all the promotional activity for Tate Modern and Tate Britain, has kept a daily journal over the course of four weeks in October. In addition, we will discuss Tate and its activities with a selection of its creative partners, including Cornel Windlin, Fallon’s Richard Flintham, James Goggin and artist and Tate trustee Jeremy Deller. As a taster, here is a seven-day extract from Gompertz’s journal. The December issue of CR is out on the 22 November.
