"In cases of armed robbery we can't run the risk of resisting, because there could be unforeseeable consequences for the employees and for the public"

Derek Fincham has more on last week's Picasso theft in Brazil. He notes the "inherent tension between keeping galleries an open space for the public versus protecting against armed robbery. Such robberies seem to be taking place with regularity in Sao Paulo though, which may make displaying art to the public more difficult there."
