Zuzi Jelinek to speak at SLAM?

Zuzi Jelinek
"The officials at SLAM may feel that the legal case is closed. But if the testimony by Jelinek is flawed, as it clearly appears to be, then the Director and Trustees of SLAM have an ethical obligation to return the mask to Egypt".
David Gill, 'St Louis Art Museum: The Egyptian Mummy Mask' Looting Matters, Tuesday, July 1, 2014.

I think that SLAM should mount an exhibition celebrating the Jelinek collection, and why not invite the collector herself to St Louis to talk about her collection and the mask in particular. I am sure there is a fascinating untold story about how she made contact with Mr or Ms Kaloterna and engineered the passage of the half-a-million dollar mask from behind the Iron Curtain to Switzerland. That seems worth SLAM forking out for a first class air ticket for her or a designated representative.
