"The Weather Project"
Tate Modern, London
2003-2004 Definition points:
art into which the viewer physically enters, & which is often described as 'theatrical', 'immersive', or 'experiential'.
addresses the viewer directly as a literal presence in the space
senses of touch, smell & sound are as heightened as sense of vision http://trip.samyeates.com/images/tm-sun2.jpg Questions Who is the spectator of installation art?
What kind of 'participation' does he or she have in the work?
Why is installation at pains to emphasize first-hand 'experience', and what kinds of 'experience' does it offer? Olafur Eliasson

"The Merzbau"
Hanover, 1933 Schwitters' built his constructions into his residences incorporating rooms he lived in into the structure. The ceilings and walls were covered with three dimensional shapes and countless nooks and grottos were filed with a variety of objects -- "spoils and relics" (personal items Schwitters stole from friends and acquaintances). http://www.e-flux.com/journal_images/12360892572_1938-coal-bags.jpg Marcel Duchamp
"Twelve Hundred Coal Bags Suspended from the Ceiling over a Stove"
(part of his installation for the Exposition Internationale du Surréalisme, Paris) http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_kX8H-5jDbYk/St5e4pgSOrI/AAAAAAAABRs/bEevNh6TIEc/s640/duchamp_large.jpg Marcel Duchamp
"sixteen miles of string,"
1942 Environments/Happenings
of the late 1950's (they wanted to move
away from the galleries) In the winter of 1961, Claes Oldenburg circumvented the practice of selling art through a gallery by opening a storefront on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and selling his work there. Among the unorthodox, eclectic offerings were sculptures of undergarments and slices of blueberry pie and other pastries made out of painted plaster. To advertise this bold endeavor, Oldenburg created business cards and stationery as well as posters such as the one on view here. Modeled after a poster the artist saw in a Puerto Rican neighborhood of New York, it retains a few Spanish words. A milestone of Pop art, The Store heralded Oldenburg’s interest in the slippery line between art and commodity and the role of the artist in self-promotion. http://www.moma.org/collection_images/resized/452/w500h420/CRI_63452.jpg http://plazalondon.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/oldenburg-store-cakes.jpg http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_hoGizCI1FwY/TCE6mHKR0NI/AAAAAAAAAh0/9hmH8vJH7q4/s1600/allan_kaprow+Household,+women+licking+jam+off+of+a+car+1964.jpg Allan Kaprow, "Household Women
