Best Art Installations In The World Right Now

by Vera • 21 Apr 2019

There are so many incredible things to see in around the world: stunning skyline views, beautiful beaches, hidden hiking destinations, quite a few nudes, and restaurant and bar menus as carefully curated as some of this city’s most beautiful museum exhibitions.
In 2018, we saw an eclectic mix of installation inspiration, but there’s no denying that humanity’s relationship with nature was a prominent theme throughout the year. Ranging from poignant to playful, these works of art prompted viewers to engage with art from an environmental perspective.

Installation artworks (also seldom described as ‘environments’) often fill an entire room or gallery space that the viewer has to walk through to engage enough with the work of art. Some installations, however, are meant merely to be walked around and viewed, or are so delicate that they can only be seen from a doorway, or one end of a room. What makes installation art different from sculpture or other popular art forms is that it is a total combined experience, rather than a display of separate, individual artworks. The focus on how the viewer experiences the work and the desire to provide an intense experience for them is a dominant theme in installation art.
