The New York Times posted a concise overview of art as social practice that, though it glosses over its decades-long history, does nicely summarize the deep (perhaps irreconcilable) divide between the market and its institutions on one hand, and social practitioners on the other. Stretcher has covered many such projects over the years - some more and some less successful - and has chatted with some of the field's most important theorists. As institutions struggle to keep up with - and reframe for conventional display - these projects, however, they're still asking the same, stale questions.
