Design d’espace / Allestimento / Exhibition Design
Methods, Issues, Conceptual Shifts

In 1937, Herbert Bayer defined exhibition design as a complex visual language structured both on the dialectic between different elements (Fundamentals of Exhibition Design, 1937) and, more generally, on the treatment of space and its narration. In 1982, with the text “Allestimenti/Exhibit Design”, and later in 1988, with the volume “Mostrare. Allestimento in Italia dagli anni Venti agli anni Ottanta,” Sergio Polano suggested a clear definition of the practice of the exhibition design. By seeking to articulate its history through the lens of the design production, the Italian theorist recognized in this notion: “[…] the art to design the interiors for the dwelling of objects temporarily collected in that totality (unicum) that should be the exhibition” (Polano 1988). In the same period, in Paris, the Cabinet d’Arts Graphiques of the Pompidou Center insisted on the creative potential of the exhibition and its role within the process of creating a work of art, by organizing an exhibition on the theme of “L’œuvre et son accrochage” (1986).
