Te Papa 'failing' on national art display - former gallery director

From Morning Report, 8:55 am on 24 October 2018

A former National Art Gallery director says Te Papa is failing to do justice to the national art collection. The museum has been responsible for the collection for the past twenty years and has faced fierce criticism from art lovers for the amount it displays at any one time. But in March this year, Te Papa opened Toi Art - a new gallery which promised to give the museum 35 percent more space for art. It has been seven months since that gallery opened - so are we seeing more of the collection? Our arts, culture and entertainment reporter, Katie Scotcher has more.
