Transcript of Installation Art Presentation

ART WHAT IS INSTALLATION ART? ORIGINS/INFLUENCE Work that fits within the realm of "installation art" has existed since art itself has, but the term/definition didn't come into popular use until the late 60's and 70's. The art world was becoming even less dominated by static, unchanging paintings, and there was an influx of artists interested in exploring "meta" concepts extending beyond the works themselves as well as embracing ephemeral, intimate art pieces singular to a specific time and place. (performance art, the "happenings" of the hippie movement, etc)

Duchamp's "Fountain" is often considered to be one of the earliest examples of modern installation art for the transformation of an object, the way it comments on the gallery setting it inhabits, and the necessity of the viewer's experience as part of the art itself.

Warhol's "Silver Flotations"

Kusama's dots/infinity rooms FINAL QUESTION: One of the primary responsibilities of an an art museum curator is to make decisions in selecting, arranging, and displaying pieces of artwork within a gallery space that they design and control. Could the work of a curator arguably be considered a form of installation art itself--and if so, do those who organize/display artwork created by others have any ethical responsibilities regarding how they install it? Why or why not?
