Whether visiting the Mona Lisa at The Louvre Museum, a Turrell Skyspace in LA or Monet’s 'Waterlillies' at Chichu, the spaces in which we encounter art are critical in shaping our experience of it. Recognising the combination of environment, atmosphere, anticipation and audience, artists and curators continue to challenge the traditional space of the gallery in search of experience and impact. So how have architects responded? This lecture explores some of the extreme demands of contemporary art practice on gallery design, and the significance of architecture in creating our experience of art through spaces both singular and sublime.
