Small Galleries and Museums Join Forces to Fight Giants' Blockbuster Mentality ; HOME
Jury, Louise, The Independent (London, England)
An alliance of smaller museums is fighting back against what it labels the "blockbusteritis" promoted by major galleries by joining forces to promote the notion that small is beautiful.
The Wallace Collection, the Dulwich Picture Gallery and the Courtauld Institute of Art in London hosted a joint announcement of their forthcoming plans yesterday in an attempt to prove that there was life beyond the attention-grabbing programmes of the Tate, the National Gallery and Royal Academy. The institutions pointed out that in an age where visitor numbers dominate headlines, they had neither the capacity nor the facilities to cope with the crowds drawn to big-name shows.
