Timelines for Art
In his recent article in Curator: The Museum Journal, (56: 2, 2013) US academic Steven Lubar argues that although the timeline seems a 'natural' and 'accessible' approach to museum display, it offers a very 'deterministic' narrative structure. Lubar suggests various ways in which the museum timeline may be revisited and opened up to visitor interaction. Inspired by my reading of this article, I've started to compile a collection of museum and art history based timelines, to get me thinking about how the 'timeline architecture' might be usefully applied to my research into the public art 'collection' in Newcastle-Gateshead.

From 'Pre-Art' to 'Techno-Pop'

From 'Pre-Art' to 'Techno-Pop' | Timelines for Art | Scoop.it
Rebecca Farley's insight:

I've found this very colourful timeline on a wiki page, but I don't know who created it. It's a rare example of a timeline that actually includes public art as a field of contemporary practice. See top right where the designer has nested 'Ritual Site-Art' / 'Urban Site Art' / 'Site Art' between 'Architectural Sculpture', 'Earth Art',  'Installation Art' and 'Performance Art'.

Diagramming Cubism and Abstract Art

Diagramming Cubism and Abstract Art | Timelines for Art | Scoop.it
Rebecca Farley's insight:

Alfred H Barr's 1936 Cubism and Abstract Art is a much cited example of a timeline/diagram (and of classic 1930s graphic design) . It maps artistic movements and influences in what Edward Tufte describes here as 'an art-historical two-space'. To me it seems very reminscent of diagrams emerging out of 'Actor-Network Theory' and of the now ubiquitous 'Wordcloud'.
