Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today exhibitions have to compete in an increasingly sophisticated leisure market. Consequently, the way in which the contemporary exhibition is designed is changing fast; previously aloof cultural institutions are making use of technologies and techniques more commonly associated with film and retail. Exhibition-making is now synonymous with image-making, communication, and the creation of a powerful experience. features examples of a wide variety of exhibitions from around the world, from major trade and commerce fairs to well-known fine-art institutions and small-scale artist-designed displays. The introduction gives an historical perspective on the development of exhibitions and museums, with particular focus on the developments of the twentieth century. The book is divided into two parts: Approaches and Techniques. Approaches is devoted to the conceptual themes of narrative space, performative space, and simulated experience. Techniques covers the practical concerns of display, lighting, color, sound, and graphics. To illustrate these themes the book features photographs, drawings, and diagrams of exhibitions from around the world, including the work of such internationally renowned architects and designers as Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Atelier Brückner, Casson Mann, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Imagination, METStudio, and Jean Nouvel.

Book News Annotation:

Dernie (Manchester School of Architecture, UK), an architect and designer, discusses contemporary exhibition design, themes, and procedures. He outlines the subject's history, describes different techniques used in display, and demonstrates by including many color photos from recent international exhibitions ranging from consumer pavilions to small-scale displays from as far back as 1985. Lighting, and combining communication, color, and graphics are detailed in the final chapter. Approaches covered include narrative and performance spaces and simulated experiences. The techniques detailed are not intended to be guides, but as an example of possible tools. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Setting the Stage for Viewing Art

There are few sources such as this one - EXHIBITION DESIGN - that share insider thoughts and plans and results of the process of presenting exhibitions in museums. As such it is a welcome addition to the art lover's library, something to ponder when trying to discover why some exhibitions (despite the subject of the curated objects) make and impact while others feel cold and distant to all but the addicted lover of that particular subject.

Architect and exhibition designer David Dernie shares the mechanics and philosophies of current museums, pointing out the current concepts of 'immersion, interaction, and multisensory experiential approach' have moved from the purely entertainment field into the realm of the once rather sterile filed of exhibition design. His thoughts are amply illustrated by architectural renderings and photographs that, while informative, are not of the quality one would expect from a book on museum wisdom! But the elements of psychological significance on how to present art to the public eye to enhance the experience of viewing are sound ones, and in his words 'how objects are arranged will determine the nature of the message they communicate.'
