The difference engine

What a difference 18 months makes in art museum land. Back in September 2011 two of our art museum directors logged up 25 years between them. Now (well in a month or so) only two of the six are with the same institution. Elizabeth Caldwell has started the clock ticking at the City Gallery and Cam McCracken has taken her place at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. That leaves Rhana Devenport at the Govett-Brewster and Jenny Harper at the Christchurch Art Gallery on 6.5 years each. You can check out the situation as it was in 2007 here.
