Following on from yesterday's post. Alasdair Gray (Scottish writer and artist) has a blog. Exciting. On the new Art Galleries:
The curator, Mark O’Neill, told me these arrangements were better than the old ones where natural history exhibits, human artefacts and paintings were displayed separately – better because more democratic, since people would have to find their own connections between such very different things, instead of having the connections made clear. I regard this as a Post-modern idea. I am an old-fashioned chap who insists on being just modern.
