4.673 Installation Art
Focuses on a specific genre of contemporary art that produces environments or room-sized immersive forms rather than portable "art objects." Installation art is viewed from a historical perspective, as a rejection of the modernist aesthetic of purity and the neutral white gallery space. Its corollary in site-specific art is explored in relation to previous exhibition models such as natural history displays or merchandising conventions. Graduate students will be expected to produce a final research paper.
