David Roberts ART Foundation
大衛·羅伯茨藝術基金會


A: Is there anything you are doing to develop new audiences?

V: We are speaking a lot with universities. But maybe I should start with what we are not doing. At the moment, we don’t have any programmes for the children, because we don’t have expertise to do that. I think it has to be done by someone who knows perfectly well what he or she is doing. We don’t have a programme for small communities or groups, as we don’t focus on specific groups. However we are speaking to different universities in London, we do some music and dance as well, so we are bringing in different audiences . Of course we want to share our activities, but on the other hand we should not compromise them: I don’t want to be populist to increase numbers. One thing to add: because we are privately funded we don’t have to justify our audience. It is then not the audience that should demonstrate the artistic project in the foundation, that is a luxury, and we should really try to keep it as it is.

A:你有拓寬新觀眾群的計劃嗎?

V:我們正與許多大學聯系,或者我應該從我們未涉及的領域開始起。現在我們沒有任何的兒童項目,因為目前還沒有這方面的專業人士,我認為這個任務必須由那些確實知道如何操作的專家來執行。我們也沒有與小群體、小組織相關的項目,因為我們沒有將目標鎖定在一些特定的群體。但是我們正在與倫敦的各個大學溝通,同時我們也會加入一些音樂和舞蹈的項

目來吸引更多不同的觀眾。我們當然希望與更多的人分享我們的活動,但我們並不希望為了增加觀眾的數目而作出妥協從而變得平民化。還有一點,我們是一個私人投資的基金會,我們不需要向任何機構交代我們的觀眾群。所以我們並不奢望由觀眾來闡明任何藝術項目,而應該保持原樣,任其自由發揮。

A: So we may say this is the key advantage of private foundations?

V: I think it’s a huge advantage of private foundations.

A:所以這是私人基金會的一個重要優勢嗎?

V:我認為這是個巨大的優勢。

A: Are there any regulations that restrict the operation of the foundation?

V: We are not commercial so we can not sell artworks. That’s one of the regulations. And then you have all the health and safety regulations. We also can’t be open all night, or have a big party downstairs (in the space). But apart from that, we are quite flexible.

A:你們需要被一些條例監控基金會的運作嗎?

V:我們不是商業機構所以不能做藝術品的買賣,這是其中的一個規則。然後就是一些健康與安全條列,我們不能通宵舉辦活動,或者在樓下的空間舉辦大型派對,除此之外,我們都比較靈活。
