Well, I didn’t see it myself, yet, but the commenters on the Google + site for its new Art Talks series, which I wrote about here, seemed mostly satisfied.
One man, from Italy wrote: “…this is a very interesting project. We would like to air the next episodes of the Google Art Project live on national TV in Italy, especially the Art Talk with the London National Gallery with Caroline Campbell, Curator of Italian Paintings before 1500. Do you think this could be possible? If so, can I ask you to help me get the proper authorization?”
That’s in line with Italy’s usual interest in visual arts TV, though I don’t think that’s what Google had in mind.
There was apparently some confusion about getting onto the right site, and whether Google provided enough capacity — which is strange because the Google hangouts I’ve seen seem to have endless capacity.
