How much space should a work of art have (as the phrase went) to "breathe"? If paintings implicitly declare their own terms of occupancy, the somewhat aggrieved muttering between them becomes harder to ignor. What goes togehter, what doesn't? The esthetics of hanging evolves according to its own habits, which become conventions, which become laws. We enter tthe era where works of arts conceive the walls as a no-man's land on which to project their concept of the territorial imperatieve. And we are not far from the kind of border warfare that often Balkanizes museum group shows. - Brian O'Doherty in The Ideology of the Gallery Space
