What leads you to look at art, visiting a specific museum or do you go out to see certain artists?
I love that art opens up a way of seeing the world and meeting people. For example, I’ve just done a road trip from Georgia O’Keefe’s Ghost Ranch in Santa Fe to Donald Judd’s Chinati Foundation in Marfa.
What is a good reason to say no?
When you can’t give something the time and focus it deserves.
What makes you happy?
Working as part of a team to help artists make amazing things happen, which is then enjoyed and appreciated by as many people as possible, such as Fiona Banner’s Chinook helicopter rotor blade installation – actually awesome!
