The Gallery of Lost Art


The Tate Gallery has a marvellous new website, The Gallery of Lost Art, an immersive online exhibition that explores the materiality, nature, biography and archive of missing (often canonical) works of art. Exploring the resonances and traces of pieces such as Rachel Whiteread”s and Robert Smithson’s Partially Buried Woodshed the site explores art that is ephemeral, discarded, missing, transient, erased, destroyed and attacked, and constitutes new materialities for these works in the form of image, text, audio, and dense archival explorations. The design of the site is also wonderful and don’t forget to check out the blog.
