Contemporary Art Shows since At the time, the conference was, if not the first, certainly among the first attempts to review a field of historical research that had gone heretofore largely unnoticed: The art object has for too long been considered in isolation, as a material artefact independent of the web of power relations in which it is produced, discussed, exchanged, stored and exhibited.
Feminist and Marxist historians in the s taught us to view the art object in all its social complexity, bringing it out of the exclusive purview of the connoisseur, for whom the encounter with art was essentially that of individual, if not isolated, contemplative immersion and appreciation.
By beginning to explore the pre-eminent role exhibitions, in the widest sense, play in the formation of our understanding of art, but especially contemporary art, the conference aimed to make its modest contribution to this emerging field of historical analysis. At the same time, the decidedly immodest claim of exploring not just any exhibitions but those that were landmarks, clearly and consciously throws down the gauntlet to critics, historians and curators, asking for its presumption to be pricked.
While attempting to stake a claim for the ground to be investigated, it also issues a challenge about the terms of this definition, about including or re-inserting what hegemonic discourse traditionally excluded: If evidence were needed to illustrate the radically altered landscape in which exhibition histories are now taking shape, we can point to those conferences that started to unpick the seams of the landmark-based history tentatively sketched at Exhibitions and the World at Large at Tate Britain in April and Invisible History of Exhibitions: Parallel Chronologies organised by tranzit.
