Old and New Art
From today's NY Times article about Saatchi's new myspace site for artists:
"The diverse offerings have caught the eye of contemporary-art experts like Olivier Varenne, director of the Museum of Old and New Art being established in Tasmania, the island state of Australia."
We can't get enough of that name! Can the Met borrow it for a year? Also, are those separate departments? Is someone "Chief Curator of Old Art?" Is the "Director of New Art" his protege? Anyway, isn't "Old" a little un-P.C.? Triple Diesel recommends "historically endowed."
We think the Museum of Old and New Art has an old and new web site here.
