Conceptual Art In A Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization And Documentation


'Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective' focuses on the curatorial practice of exhibiting conceptual art. The fact that conceptual works are not object-based, creates challenges in exhibiting them. This book offers various perspectives on how to handle conceptual art in the context of the museum, based on three detailed case studies and an extensive introduction in which the paradox of conceptual art is analyzed. It also elaborates on the history of exhibiting conceptual artworks, and on the influence of curators in their canonization. It is relevant for students of art and culture, art and museum professionals, and everyone interested in the art of the 1960s and 1970s.
