Miyuca vs Montebello en el Met ( 30 años como director)


Miyuca no se quiere ir: Motebello ya se retiró

Con una historia de 138 años...digo, es el MET, su director más longevo se retiró después de 30 años...el mismo admitió que ya era casi indecente estar tanto tiempo...y digo, con lo que el tipo tuvo que bregar y los millones, etc, etc, etc...

Miyuca lleva 23 en un corral donde entran 8 gatos en una semana y donde no se hace una retrospectiva decente hace 6 años...en un "museo" donde no tienen ni un print de Warhol.

Risible, ridículo, trágico y triste.

Museum Director Resigns After 30-Year Tenure

Philippe de Montebello, the eighth and longest-serving director in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s 138-year history, announced Tuesday that he planned to retire by the end of the year, after 30 years of leading the institution, The New York Times reports.

During his tenure, Mr. de Montebello, 71, more than doubled the museum’s physical size and helped make it New York City’s biggest tourist attraction.

Mr. de Montebello informed the Met’s board of trustees that he intended to leave the museum at the end of 2008 or as soon as a successor has been found. “After three decades, to stay much further would be to skirt decency,” he said. “This has not been an easy decision — it’s wrenching for me, it’s been my entire life.”

Mr. de Montebello said he felt good about the timing of his retirement and considered 2007 a hallmark year. Indeed, last year he oversaw the opening of nine new or renovated galleries, while the museum also presented some 21 exhibitions, including “The Age of Rembrandt,” which attracted 505,082 visitors.

Miyuca vs Director del MAC Chicago


Fitzpatrick se retira y Miyuca sigue pega a su silla


Al empezar en el '98 Fitzpatrick prometió ser director del Museum of Contemporary Art de la ciudad de Chicago por solo 10 años y cumplió.

No necesitamos directores vitalicios en la islita. Dudo que el reinado de Miyuca halla sido más difícil que el de Fitzpatrick.



La noticia:

Robert Fitzpatrick, director and CEO of the Museum of Contemporary Art since 1998, has become international managing director of Haunch of Venison, a 6-year-old gallery for contemporary art with spaces in London, Zurich and Berlin.

On arriving at the MCA, Fitzpatrick said he would not stay in the position for more than a decade, and true to his word, in 2007 he announced he would leave the museum this year. His last day at the MCA was Wednesday.

Fitzpatrick, 67, now will be based in New York, where part of his new role is to oversee the fall opening of a 20,000-square-foot branch of the gallery at Rockefeller Center. Founded in 2002 by Harry Blain and Graham Southern, Haunch of Venison was acquired early last year by Christie's International. The gallery represents such artists as Pedro Cabrita Reis, Richard Long, Jorge Pardo and filmmaker Wim Wenders.

y este es heavy..finalmente vemos a Ramon Valle. Alguién lo conoce o lo ha visto alguna vez en las exposiciones por ahi? Nope:


"For over two decades—and counting—Miyuca has overseen an institution which appears to limp, wheeze, and groan from year to year, depending on the will of the island government for its operating budget—pegged by law in 1994 at $500,000 a year—and the largesse of artists—not exactly the most well-fed among us—to build its collection. Some would say that a museum that relies on artist donations is as much as begging for second-rate holdings, to put it mildly. Miyuca and her board of directors are not among the poo-pooers, however, estimating the worth of MAC’s collection at a whopping—and fantastic by any measure—$8 million. Well, could be. We happen to publish a prosperous, influential web magazine that is easily worth $10 million. Just ask us."
