Blockbuster

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 12:48 PM

This post was suggested by a  New York Times  article online today
about an upcoming exhibition at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts —

"A version of this article appears in print on August 6, 2017,
on Page AR2 of the New York edition with the headline:

Art;  Woodblock Smackdown!."

The article suggests a look at  a July 3 Times  review of the life of
Jan Fontein, a former Boston Museum of Fine Arts director —

"Mr. Fontein’s time as director coincided with
the nationwide rise of the blockbuster exhibition,
and he embraced the concept. 'There was such a thing
as a contemplative museum, but I don’t think that can
survive anymore,' he told Newsweek  in 1978."

Fontein died at 89 on May 19, 2017. See Dharmadhatu — a Log24 post
