If artists due to the fact Marcel Duchamp have affirmed choice and association as valid inventive recommendations, was once it now not easily an issue of time ahead of curatorial practice--itself outlined via choice and arrangement--would emerge as noticeable as an paintings that operates at the box of artwork itself?"
