    I wish I could do that but exhibitions are not allowed to be filmed unless it’s for the press, the archives, the artist himself or for a documentary. But I agree, that would be a great way to report about exhibitions. Maybe sometime in the future I will have a privilege to do it.

    Thanks for your suggestion Giovanna.
