Contributor Notes:

Reader has written in pencil “Art w/o an audience is incomplete” next to a passage highlighted in yellow that says “The artist, Duchamp said, is a “mediumistic being” who does not really know what he is doing or why he is doing it. It is the spectator who, through a kind of “inner osmosis,” deciphers and interprets the work’s inner qualifications, relates them to the external world, and thus completes the creative cycle.
