This is an indispensible volume for creators, curators, and conservators of installation art. Installation art is an evolving, often ephemeral medium that defies rigid categorization. It has also radically transformed the concepts of space, time, and the experience of art. The conservation field is faced with unique challenges over how best to manage and preserve the essence of these works. How detailed can documentation get? When does the replacement of original components become acceptable? How does the field cope with the obsolescence of certain technologies? By exploring the questions and dilemmas facing those who care for art installations, this book intends to raise awareness and promote discussion about the various conservation approaches for these works.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In the past 20 years, fewer than 10 books have been published on this subject. . . . The documentation strategies introduced--and then applied to a series of installations described in terms of media, space, artist's vision, and future--make a significant and unique contribution to the discipline."--Choice
"Comprehensive."--Book News
