The conflict between an artist’s work and the context in which it is placed is a traditional problem in aesthetics. Recent exhibits have given it a new urgency. Too often a painter’s canvases have been hung in an improper context because the gallery managers have not understood what the painter envisioned as the work’s proper environment.

As an attempt to solve the problem described above, it would be most reasonable to

(A) bring artists and gallery managers into closer contact, so as to increase the artist’s input into the way the exhibit is held.
(B) provide brochures at the exhibit that describe the artist and how he or she intended the exhibit to look
(C) redesign galleries so that their decor contains nothing that would distract the audience from the works themselves
(D) provide a uniform environment for all the works in an exhibition so that they appear within the same context
(E) instruct gallery managers in the fine points of aesthetic theory so that they will be able to tell what, if anything, a painting means

[Reveal] Spoiler:
i thought A is wrong as it will be difficult for Manager to incorporate the inputs by artists as artists can have different views on the way exhibition is held and Manager cannot make everyone Happy. That's why I went with B. Did I thought too much on this? B does the Job well. It gives Manager sufficient information to execute the exhibition.

hi ,
yes i think you thought out of context.
problem of the argument:
managers dont know how to present the art..as it is inteded by author.
so now if both mangers and artist are in regular touch then this problem can be solved.
we dont have to think what other work artist or manager do...we just have to worry about the problem stated and we have to solve that problem only .

now option B is wrong TOO:
provide brochures at the exhibit that describe the artist and how he or she intended the exhibit to look==> THIS MEANS mangers will do by their own way without bothering author...but brochure will be provided to everybody coming to see the art for making those viewer to understand the authors intention.===> THIS DOESNT SOLVES OUR PROBLEM OF...AUTHOR VS MANAGERS...
HENCE THIS IS WRONG

KUDOS if it helped.

Answer is A

(A) bring artists and gallery managers into closer contact, so as to increase the artist’s input into the way the exhibit is held.

SEE as i have stated in above post:
problem of the argument:
managers dont know how to present the art..as it is inteded by artists.
so now if both mangers and artist are in regular touch then this problem can be solved.
that is what option A IS saying.

D cant be the answer:
provide a uniform environment for all the works in an exhibition so that they appear within the same context===>if you provide the same environment for all the environment then in that case is it solving the conflict of MANAGER and AUTHOR==>NO

example : you put all the painting in a beautiful well designed room==>you are providing same environment for all.
but does this mean that the managers will present the art as per the artists intention.===> we cant say
hence option D is wrong

KUDOS if it helped.

Yes you thought too much. The text does not say anything like that so you cannot assume it. Stick to what it's given.

B does not the job well. We know that "canvases have been hung in an improper context because the gallery managers have not understood what the painter envisioned as the work’s proper environment."

Even if you "B provide brochures at the exhibit that describe the artist and how he or she intended the exhibit to look" but you do not change anything about the context, the problem remains.
The brochure could say something like "the artist designed this painting with light in his mind", but if you place the canvas in a dark room the problem remains.

Hope it' s clear
