Changing Displays: Exhibition as Event

With the increasing presence of performance in contemporary art, the lines between durational event and temporary exhibition are starting to blur. As these new approaches become more widespread, are institutions responding to changing artistic practices by creating spaces that are more flexible, temporary, and performance focused, or are artists having to adapt how they work to fit into these new conditions?
