Questions of Context: The Display of Minimal Art in the Museum and the Viewer Experience
MetadataShow full item record
Minimal artists of the 1960s produced works that were large in scale and confronted the viewer. This artistic movement is characterized, and in many ways validated, by the critical literature produced by artists, art critics and historians. The field of art history continues to heavily influence museum display; however, a growing concern for the viewer’s experience is evident in museum practice. This master’s project, through data collected from a literature review and comparative case study, explores the ways museum exhibition practice influences the relationship between the art object and the viewer in relation to minimal art, informed by relevant art historical methodologies.
