Art in context: installation photography on Artstor

From The Artstor Blog archive:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Special Exhibition Galleries, 2nd floor: "Gilbert Stuart" (October 21, 2004-January 16, 2005; image © The Metropolitan Museum of Art)If you read a review or article about an interesting museum exhibition you missed you can usually find images of the featured artworks. But have you ever wondered how the works were presented, where they were placed? Which pieces were shown together, and in what order?

Exhibition design is central in museology, also known as museum studies, which asks how to present exhibitions that engage and enlighten the viewer. It’s also of interest to curators, art historians, and even artists, who often want to see what effect context has on artworks. That’s why the Artstor Digital Library offers tens of thousands of exhibition documentation images ranging from the late 19th century to the present.
