Word of the Week: Imbrication

as in: “While public murals, modernist and otherwise, were a significant component of the fair, they were neither positioned nor understood in the way Cahill and other supporters of public muralism preferred-as an ideal means of democratizing the arts and developing a more inclusive public culture, as an alternative to the imbrication of the arts within the gallery-museum-market system.”
