Art & Artifact: The Museum as Medium.
The first extensive survey of one of the most intriguing themes in contemporary art -
the phenomenon of the ideological exchange and relationship between artist and museum.
From Duchamp's 'portable museum' to Damien Hirst's distinctive use of vitrines, this
book examines the ways in which artists have made their works into 'museums' and been
influenced by their display and archive systems. It also illustrates how they have
questioned the museum's institutional role, curated their collections, intervened
in them and helped to redefine them.
