White Cube Veteran Tim Marlow Poached by London’s Royal Academy
London’s Royal Academy of Arts has appointed White Cube’s director of exhibitions Tim Marlow as their first ever director of artistic programs, the Guardian reported. A fixture of the British art scene for almost two decades, Marlow is also a prolific broadcaster and critic for the BBC and Sky Arts. The job, he said, is “expansive, demanding, challenging … and on another level you think ‘blimey’.” While he’s aware of the RA’s need to diversify audiences, he has already made a few points clear: “there will be no baby and bathwater nonsense. I’m not going to chase youth at the expense of engaged audiences.”
