Connect With Art

I am sometimes inordinately grateful to Google. At the moment, my news feed intersperses bad news with occasional repostings of reviews of my museums book. Most I have seen before, but it is still (normally) a treat to read them at leisure. Today, they selected one I had nor seen ny someone who bought the book by mistake. All the greater was my pleasure to discover how much she had enjoyed it and how thoughtfully she summarises its themes and issues, including a quotation I had forgotten from Renzo Piano: ‘There’s no such thing as neutral space. Neutral architecture is pointless architecture, like soup that tastes like nothing, or a boring novel. But it’s equally clear that a museum should let the work of art take centre stage’.
