This week the Louvre Abu Dhabi opens. It's a coup for the Louvre and French culture, and of course President Macron will be there. Would Theresa May be jetting off to, say, Tate Beijing? Would Tate ever contemplate such a thing? I doubt it. In The Observer, the V&A director Tristram Hunt says that we Brits need to up our game when it comes to making similar international cultural collaborations. This is quite true, in light of the British Museum's recent cancellation of their own Abu Dhabi project.
