Installation Art: A Critical History
Installation Art provides both a history and a full critical examination of this challenging area of contemporary art, from 1960 to the present day. Using case studies of significant artists and individual works, Claire Bishop argues that, as installation art requires its audience to physically enter the artwork in order to experience it, installation pieces can be categorised by the type of experience they provide for the viewing subject. As well as exploring the methodologies of the artists examined, Bishop also explains the critical theory that informed their work. While revising and, in some cases, re-assessing many well-known names, this fully illustrated book will introduce the reader to a wide spectrum of younger artists, some yet to receive critical attention.
