The past week I’ve been on holiday, so I was pleased to get back to quite a few retweets and reblogs of my #MuseumMarmite idea.
Click here for the full article by Ben Hamley about Australian museums, shifts in how people use their time and how museums need to buck up their ideas and address those changes. There’s some swears, but who can feel passionate about something and not get a bit sweary in the process?
Vintage Vision was quick and definite in her response:
"That bloody Degas Little Dancer. Her smug little face is in every half-decent art museum, and I just want to punch her. I also hate postmodern steel and glass additions to Beaux Arts museum buildings, like the Crystal at the Royal Ontario Museum."
Attendant’s View voiced some concern about children’s galleries, posing the question of whether they:
"…provide a great friendly learning space, or indicate that the main galleries are unsuitable for children and families shouldn’t spend time in them?"
So Museum people and visitors, what’s been getting your goat this week?
