Show to be out of place (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

exposition

Here is my best explanation:

'show' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'out of place' is the subsidiary indication.

'out of' becomes 'ex'.

'place' becomes 'position' (positioning is a kind of placing**).

'ex'+'position'='exposition'

'to be' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for exposition that I've seen before include "large show", "Account", "fair", "Commentary", "Show", "Display", "commentary" and "Public display".)
