This issue of Mousse explores the ways in which concerns surrounding exhibition display and elements derived from exhibition architecture have been appropriated by contemporary artworks and art practices, and how artistic modes and attitudes have played a significant role in shaping the lexicon of exhibition design. We asked a diverse pool of guest contributors—artists, curators, writers, art and architecture critics—to select illuminating cases of cross-pollination, and to compile extended captions for their chosen images. Many more images are interspersed in the issue, and captioned in groups every few pages. The ordering is not chronological, nor by any means hierarchic. Mousse 61 is a partial mood board for this analysis of a significant and special relationship.
