Installation is one of the most popular and widespread forms of contemporary art. Installation Art provides the first clear account of the rise of installation as a form while revisiting and, in some cases, reassessing many well-known names of post-1960 art. This lavishly produced volume also introduces the reader to a wider spectrum of younger artists yet to receive serious critical attention. Artists featured include Vito Acconci, Joseph Beuys, Christian Boltanski, Marcel Broodthaers, Judy Chicago, Olafur Eliasson, Group Material, Isaac Julien, Ilya Kabakov, Yayoi Kusama, Cildo Meireles, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Smithson, Bill Viola, and many others.

Claire Bishop is the contemporary art critic of the London Evening Standard. She teaches at the Royal College of Art.Review:
Shows a profound understanding of the subject and originality of approach. Rather than being a bland survey, it is critical and breaks new interpretative ground both of the phenomenon of installation art in general and particular works. -- Margaret Iversen, University of Essex
An essential purchase and recommended reading for courses in contemporary art and post-war art (I would certainly set it in the courses I teach) . . . an important contribution to the field. -- Michael Newman, The Art Institute of Chicago
An excellent introduction to an important aspect of contemporary art, this work is recommended for academic and larger public libraries.
--Amy Weiss, Library Journal Reviews
