Installation art is a form of art which is “installed” or “put in” its surroundings or environment. It is often site specific and designed to transform the perception of a space. Installation art came to prominence in the 1970s, and installation artworks can be constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.
