In Dialogue

“In dialogue” was a new phrase that art writers could no longer live without. It meant that hanging two works next to or opposite each other produced a third thing, a dialogue, and that we were now all the better for it. I suppose the old phrase would have been “an art show”, but now we were listening. It also hilariously implied that when the room was empty of viewers, the two works were still chatting”.
