Marc Mayer Unstoppable!


Despite the misspelling of Mr. Mayer's name, and the fact that the IT department of the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal still thinks that the email I send to them is spam, Mr. Mayer gives a very good interview to the McGill Daily as part of their art issue.

Some of the key lines:
  • 'Montreal is a city with a future and Toronto is a city with a past.'
  • 'I’m trying to figure out how we can be more useful not only to the art scene here, but to the very intelligent “new-economy people” who realize that the more you know about contemporary art the better it is for you as an engineer, as a lawyer, as a doctor, because of the different paradigm of thinking that goes on in the art world...'
  • 'I think artists are much freer – and in many cases more honest – but definitely much freer than network news or even public television, or blogs for that matter.'
