AH 5616 - Art Spaces


This course explores the relationship between visual art and spatial modes of display, installation, collection, and exhibition. Using historical case studies, we question the white-wall gallery as the primary home of fine art, finding instead a rich history of alternative spaces and presentation techniques. Selected case studies include: cabinets of curiosities, salons, modern galleries, museums (art, science, natural history), department stores, archives, cities, gardens, fairs, and various mediated spaces (pictorial, electronic, virtual). This class considers how spatial conditions factor into the production and reception of art, visual culture, and media.
