Murray Dewart talks with William Stover

"Recently, I had a wonderful talk with William Stover at the Museum of Fine Arts. He's Curator of Contemporary Art. He said there's a wide pluralism in the art world today that did not exist a generation ago. Where once there was a canon, a fairly strict, perhaps ideological direction in the critical establishment, there is now a wider, more fluid openness. There is of course, always the "latest thing, what's hot and cutting edge" but it's less predominant, less likely to alter the whole landscape. Many approaches are tolerated. There are many keys to the kingdom. This reminds me that Boston Sculptors Gallery, with its wide variety of approaches, is perfectly suited for our times." - Murray Dewart
