Abstract

This paper was presented at the Symposium on East Building in Perspective Visual Arts, Ctr Adv Art, Washington, DC, April 30-May 01, 2004. The symposium is the first critical examination of the East Building, I. M. Pei's celebrated addition to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The National Gallery is considered it in the context of museum architecture, exploring the relationship between art installations and museum design, museum additions by other well-known architects, and the challenges of building and supporting an art museum outside a major metropolitan area. This chapter compares the 1980s extension to the National Gallery, London.
