I am a grad intern. at a museum in the Phoenix area, and I am in the
early stages of developing educational material for an upcoming
exhibition on the theme of installation art. I myself am just beginning
to learn what the definition of installation art is, and similarly, the
definitions of related terms (sculpture as installation, virtual space,
etc..). If anyone is familiar with this genre of art, I would greatly
appreciate any help that may be offered in understanding and defining
it. Further, I am open to suggestions for gallery activities related to
this type of art. For e.g., one idea I had would be to somehow give
school age children the chance to create their own mini installations ...
possibly in individual boxes (with the instructions to pretend they are artists
and the box represents gallery space to display their installation art in).
I am also wondering if anyone knows of current exhibitions of
installation art (and corresponding educational material - text,
activities) at any galleries or museums around the U.S. or Canada.
