Contemporary art seems to have changed the way we see art, and the places where it is supposed to be presented. Some of the most iconic exhibitigons of recent art have taken place outside of the traditional venue of the museum. Is it its destiny to be shown everywhere? Or does the experience of art belong to a certain time and space? Is the situation the same for ancient and for contemporary art?
