“The roots of this chamber of eternal display are to be found not in the history of art so much as the history of religion, where they are intact even more ancient than the medieval church. Egyptian tomb chambers, for example, provide an astonishingly close parallel. They too were chambers where an illusion of eternal presence was to be protected from the flow of time.” -Thomas McEvilley on the white cube.
Sacred ceremonies of exhibition within gallery space allow the audience to sacrifice their expectations of reality at the door and enter into a sympathetic magic. Study for a Strange Hole by American Fantasy Classics, pulls back the vale revealing an entrance to the mysticism beneath the dogma of artful space.
