Open to the public: “The Story of the Government Art Collection”

As part of the series on “Art and Nationalism in London Museums”, we’ve been looking at the ways in which museums tell a story about ‘who we are’. Away from the masses, another less public story of who we are can be observed in the “The Story of the Government Art Collection” in the Pat Matthews Gallery, The Whitechapel Gallery. For the period, 3 March-2 September 2012 the general public has the chance to peek into this elite domain, hear the story of the art which the state sees as appropriate to accompany its endeavor.

A creative researcher and writer relentlessly powered by : coffee, news, cinema, walks with the pets and a fair amount of elbow grease. I like stories that get to the heart of the matter, to raw insight.
