Hidden Track-How Visual Culture is Going Places: Hidden Track-How Visual Culture is Going Places

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

"Hidden Track" shows how contemporary visual culture is breaking out of the second dimension and printed form and entering into three-dimensional space, where it can be experienced. The book demonstrates how rooms are being occupied creatively and how items are being transformed. It presents the diverse exhibition possibilities that currently exist - a spectrum ranging from live painting to installations and 3D objects. At the same time the book illustrates how urban and street art have recently moved even further out of the subculture and are now being featured more often in galleries and museums worldwide. It analyses how these public art forms are being perceived in an international art context and investigates the fundamentally different forms of presentation that this new context demands. Through abundant images and incisive text "Hidden Track" also introduces the artists and exhibition spaces that are taking current visual culture out of the underground to the level of high culture.
From surface and into space is the overlying design trend these days. Graphic designers and urban artists are creating objects and interiors, moving into art galleries and museums worldwide. Designs, artworks and illustrations are emerging into the third-dimension increasingly featuring ornamental and sculptural objects. Hidden Track documents this movement introducing protagonists and their spaces that are taking visual culture out of the underground to the level of high culture"--P. [4] of cover.
