The portuguese website, Publico, reports that Tate Britain director Penelope Curtis is in the running to become the new director of the Gulbenkian Museum.

Update - The Art Newspaper announces today (31st March) that Penelope Curtis is indeed going to the Gulbenkian. She has been director of Tate Britain since 2010. As I said in an earlier post, although there has been criticism of some aspects of her directorship, such as the exhibition programme, nothing can take away from the fact that, in terms of the building itself, she leaves the museum in the best shape that it's ever been in. Doing so in the midst of a recession is quite some achievement.
