The Art of Revolutionary Display techniques: Excerpts from Frederick Kiesler (1989, Whitney Museum of American Art)

“Frederick Kiesler’s installation concepts were as radical as his architecture theories. Whether he was designing on a small or large scale—a single-family dwelling or an entire urban landscape, a public shrine or a commercial art gallery—his basic concerns were unified by his lifelong preoccupation with “continuity.” Kiesler first developed this concept in the mid-1920s. As he recalled, ‘It was in 1924-25, in the Vienna of Strauss waltzes, and in the Paris of the Beaux-Arts, that I eliminated the separation between floor, walls, and ceiling, and created floors, walls, and ceiling, as a continuous whole.'” -Cynthia Goodman
