"Combining chronological history, reminiscences, and broad essays, this book is a valuable overview of the Mattress Factory and its contributions to contemporary installation art." -Ronald Onorato, Department of Art, University of Rhode Island

Installations is an exciting exploration of site-specific artworks by Kiki Smith, John Cage, Ann Hamilton, Greer Lankton, and many other artists from around the world. Statements by the artists, verbal descriptions of the eighty-seven works presented during the 1990s, and insightful essays on different facets of installation art add depth to this remarkable photographic record.
