The "Artomatic" collective of several hundred Washington-area artists will not be able to exhibit together before 2011 at the earliest because, so far, no space large enough to contain their work has been contracted. (Reported early negotiations with a local junior high school may or may not be progressing.)

Given the uncurated, unjuried and unrestrained nature of the group's shows, critics have been prone to recollect Marcel Duchamp's early difficulties with (and revenge on) exhibition judges. On the other hand, with so much material on display, the line between museum and everything else tends to blur.
