The Untold History of Immersive Art

At the intersection of art, architecture and design, environments create and transform space into an immersive experience, inviting the audience to engage and interact. So far, art history has been focused on the works of male artists mostly from the US and Europe. Inside Other Spaces: Environments by Women Artists 1956-1976 aims to signpost a different narrative by highlighting women’s fundamental contributions to this field. Redefining the canon, the exhibition features 11 pioneering women artists from three generations, spanning Asia, Europe, and the Americas, including Judy Chicago, Aleksandra Kasuba, and Lygia Clark. Given the experimental nature of such environ ments, many of these original works were deconstructed or destroyed. The detailed reconstructions, which are carried out with the help of restorers and based on archival photographs, construction plans, and material lists, are presented here for the first time. Conceived as a reference book for the historiography of environments, the publication comprises a wealth of visual material also on artists not featured in the show, such as Yayoi Kusama and Yoko Ono, providing leading scholars’ essays and extensive bibliographies on environments and individual artists.

FEATURED ARTISTS: Lygia Clark, Aleksandra Kasuba, Marta Minujín, Maria Nordman,Faith Wilding, Tsuruko Yamazaki
