Art Galleries of Australia

“National Gallery boss keen …. scandal” News SMH 17 October. If the incoming boss of the National Gallery of Australia (note that description) is going to clean up the Shiva scandal when he actually takes over, how about another point to clarify:
We have the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, we have (State) Art Galleries – except for Victoria which is self-titled “National Gallery of Victoria”. How can this be? How can the Art Gallery of Victoria be “National”? Bit of a tautology surely?
