What we see today

What we see today is an art which seeks a more immediate contact with people than the museum makes possible… and the museum in turn is striving to accommodate the immense pressures that are imposed upon it from within art and from outside art. So we are witnessing, as I see it, a triple transformation—in the making of art, in the institutions of art, in the audience of art.
