Reading Materializing Six Years: Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art (2012). From the Preface by Lippard:

"Much (but not all) of the art in Six Years was dedicated to the subversion of art-world assumptions, a need to challenge authority, to question everything, especially the nature of art itself and the context within which it was made, shown, and distributed. The artists invented ways for art to act as an invisible frame for seeing and thinking rather than as an object of delectation or connoisseurship" (xii).
