Installation Art's New York Roots 9 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the first stop for anybody serious about examining the history of Installation art in New York from its beginnings in the late 1950s to the early 1990s. The book provides insightful research and analysis based on multiple points of view: the artist, the curators, and the critics. Intelligent and carefully written, this book is a pleasure for art historians and anybody with an interest in contemporary art.

Really well written account of the Genre 2 Nov. 2011
By Denise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed this book and consider it well-written and an excellent source for information about the installation art genre from its early roots through 2000. I would like to have seen the images in a larger format, but the descriptions and accounts are thorough enough to help me imagine what these environments were like. Consider reading this with Clare Bishop's book "Installation Art."

Enjoyable read that get's into the artist mind 31 July 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a VR installation artist, I really found the historical "personality" of this book enjoyable - the frustrations of the setups and how the artist interacted with the galleries. The book is very approachable, just like the art work it reflects ... and I'm sure anyone that walks into this book will come out of the experience in a different space. From a art theory viewpoint, an artists often does things that are based on the past, but doesn't realize it(for example I often used the word "Installation", but didn't know the history of the word's usage and how the transition occured). I found the book well ballanced between readable/theory/technical/enjoyment.

A crucial subject matter to contemporary art exposed at last 15 Jun. 2000
By Guy A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
What is the place of art in contemporary/post-modern scenario, in the age of globalization and 'institutionalism' of art production we live in? This question has become one of the crucial subject matters to great artists and theorical authors of our time, and Mrs. Reiss appears to have the correct approach on this well-discussed aspect of contemporary art, specially from the early 70's.
