Installation and intervention

Installation: Use for works, beginning in the 1960s, that use their exhibition space as part of their design. Demanding a viewer's active engagement, installations are often created by artists in direct opposition to the notion of permanent artwork, or art as a commodity. Intervention: Interaction with a pre-existing artwork, audience, site or space.
