Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Was very useful in offereing a clear study of installation art and how this term is interpreted. Every aspect was tackled and thoroughly explored with a great deal of insight. Good grounding in all the problems of new media and approaches used in contemporary exhibitions. This would be a good book to buy and read if only one book was wanted on this subject. Well written and fascinating.

Clear, well written History of the Genre 2 Nov. 2011
By Denise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a well-written, clear explanation of the history of installation art from as early as the surrealists to the date it was published. Some of the images are too small to get a better feel for the installations they are depicting, but the descriptions of these installations are usually detailed enough for a good idea. This book along with "From Margin to Center" pretty well covers the subject up through 2004. Something needs to be written to capture the amazing works that have been happening since then. I'm waiting for that to happen.

Good introduction to installation art 12 April 2011
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While not comprehensive by any means, this book is a great starting point for developing a vocabulary to distinguish various strategies employed by installation artists.

Excellent art theory/history text 22 Oct. 2012
By keith Bradbury - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Installation Art by Claire Bishop is an excellent text for tertiary level fine art and design students as well as art history students. In addition to offering an excellent attempt to define the distinguishing concerns of Installation Art in the latter C20th, her Introduction sustains the argument whether postmodern visual culture is an extension of modernism or distinguished from modernism by several, clearly identifiable, discursive concerns. A selection of those concerns is then lucidly argued. In achieving both these goals the book is an excellent course text for the above mentioned students.
