Musings of a book event organiser
Monday, 8 October 2012
An idea is gaining ground: that Moffat's Old Academy building should become Scotland's Centre for the European Avant Garde. The core of the collection will be Richard Demarco's remarkable archive of 1.2m black-and-white photographs, taken over 60 years of working with the cutting edge of experimental art and artists. He also has a considerable art collection - see sample at Edinburgh's Summerhall (formerly Dicks veterinary college). Suggestions, comments welcome.
