Duchamp’squestion has new life in this space, which has greatlyexpanded during the last few decades of global corporatesprawl. It’s space into which the work of art must projectitself lest it be outdistanced entirely by these corporate interests.New strategies are needed to keep up with commercialdistribution, decentralization, and dispersion.
