I like to imagine that in the future we will look back at this time as the era of The Art Cage and laugh softly at how rigidly we defined the valid arenas of creativity. If you really want to stretch the point the era began when Barnett Newman made it his ambition to make painting a valid career option. Or perhaps when frames were first put around pictures. Tuazon addresses the inability of the gallery to capture that which is important in an art-work and this is what I believe Duchamp endeavoured to address. All good but blueprints are available to be viewed in your local townhall.
