Miniature

70 - Automne 2010

Theme: For some time now, art galleries, museums as well artists’ studios have been offering us various types of models and projects that materialize as small-scale forms or “prototypes”—miniature works with a seemingly limited, barely visible field of action. This issue focus on the miniature in contemporary art—minute works, models or modelling. The essays' respective authors propose different expansive readings of these minute constructions, making use of such categories as the playful, the deceptive, and the simulacral.
