Major points:

Art and architecture as once inseparable – white cube and art as totally detached (introduction of easel painting)

Museum in relation to domestic space (white wall first implemented for the exhibition of domestic products as well as 1:1 models of houses- white wall as part of international style-architecture of standardisation)

increment in the scale of contemporary art= architecture of civic proportions

white wall-this is art
