Two completely different paths to the same job


Last week David Moos announced he was ditching the AGO to go into private practice. Last year Alain Lacoursière announced he was ditching the police force and going into private practice.

In both cases, said "private practice" is in fact being an independent art adviser. Hmmm, as Leah Sandals points out, Jessica Bradley did something similar, by opening an art gallery. And on this side of the border, I've been told that René Blouin, Pierre-François Ouellette also opened art galleries after working for the government.

But only Alain Lacoursière got his own TV show. Take that! Ontario independent art adviser!!
