Price: Not Available
Description: Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2011. 28cm., pbk., 266pp. illus., several in color. Summary: Anything is possible in installation art—but that freedom comes with a cost, as the mutability of the intended experience along with the typically short lifespan of the techniques and materials used can present great difficulty to the custodian of the work. This important and practical book examines the processes involved in preserving this complex form of art, reinstalling it, and finding ways to re-create the original experience of the work. Edited by the media conservator of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the program manager at the Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) in the Netherlands, this book offers a fascinating glimpse at the decisions and processes behind some of the world’s most innovative art installations.
