Drawing on Art

This chapter assesses the questions of the commodification of the spectator’s look through overexposure, and the devices of display that construct and determine the experience of art. It begins with some rapid reflections on Marcel Duchamp’s early installations and their impact on his work Given, showing how it put into question the experience of art as visual consumption and display. It also studies the paradox of positioning Given within the museum, and considers Matta-Clark’s and Wilson’s appropriations and redeployments of conceptual and institutional implications at stake.

Keywords:   apparatus of spectatorship, commodification, spectatorship, overexposure, Marcel Duchamp, Given, visual consumption, Gordon Matta-Clark, Richard Wilson
