Boris Shumiatskii, CEO of the Russian public organization "Association of Art":
- Irina - the great museum worker. She has done for this city and this country so much that it seems to me that no one had so many will not. She has just opened an exhibition of Titian, and his tenth top ten fifteen minutes uttered this speech, I do not think anyone could have it at that level again.
I believe that a person should work as long as he can work on his post. Furthermore, the issue usually is not whether someone removed and is to put someone. Hinny, if I understand correctly, it's not an art critic. She was not even a member of our association. Do not work in our environment and in our field and to be the leader of the largest museum - is impossible. So far, all I was doing Irina - guaranteed by the state. I'm not sure it's possible, some other person the state could be trusted with such millions who would go to such exhibitions. I recently did not know of any successful appointment as directors of major museums. Irina belongs to the old guard critics, in their profession she understands everything. For example, for me it was a shock to see Renoir, whom she first showed in this city: just pulled out of storage and shown. She has done a lot for the country. What she was doing - no one can do.
