What People are Saying About This

William V. Ganis

“McTighe’s critical-narrative text allows vicarious embodied experience of installations. Through well-written examples, she shows just how much analytic description is necessary to parse these complex works and the introspections they can evoke.”

Kate Mondloch

“What frames works of installation art? Monica McTighe compellingly argues that photography constitutes the art form's unacknowledged foundation, both in terms of subject matter and archival documentation. In putting photo-based practices center stage, Framed Spaces offers many insightful observations that are sure to spark lively discussion among artists and art historians alike.”
