In recent years attention has shifted from the object to the context of its presentation. The sites of production and exhibition (such as the workshop or diverse official, public, artistic, civic, religious or commercial spaces) are considered as an active part of the process of signification of historical works at a time when a large component of contemporary art explores the same issues by adopting the genre of installation. The very conception of the identity and the role of the artist is influenced by the nature of the site of production and exhibition
