Quote of the day: Leonie Bell, V&A Dundee



Disco by Bill Bernstein

“Even though nightclubs won’t be reopening for a long time and many have closed down permanently, we wanted to assert them as critical cultural spaces, just as much as museums are.

“There’s also no centralized resource for women who have a similar mindset…There’s just not a place where you can get a straight answer about anything even down to the fundamentals.

There’s nobody helping answer those questions in a centralized place for women. And I feel like men have the luxury of nerding out on Reddit threads and can figure it out from there. But there aren’t that many women included in those dialogues.”

Fran Lebowitz quote

“I’m very materialistic. Unfortunately, I am also very uninterested in money, so it’s a horrible combination. I have more Anderson & Sheppard suits and jackets than I should. More than I could really afford. Of course, you don’t actually need any of these things, and I have more than I need. That doesn’t mean that I have more than I want, since I seem to be the only American who knows the difference between desire and need. But I enjoy the whole process. There is nothing that I like more than to spend hours looking through swatches. I love deciding between 17 shades of grey.” (more…)
