Pathbreaking

From Blockbuster, a post of Friday, August 4, 2017 —

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."

From The New York Times  this evening —

"Mr. Roth made his mark at the Victoria and Albert
with record-breaking exhibitions focused on
David Bowie in 2013, Alexander McQueen in 2015
and The Beatles and the youth revolution of the 1960s
in 2016."
