Must have been a senior moment when they took on Tichy, but he was probably a hot item in all those expensive art magazines they read.
Yes, you should take it up with the curators at the museum. If they are doing their jobs they should be able to explain their reasoning to you. You may not ultimately agree but you should at least have an understanding about the choice. I would hope you go into it with an open mind however and not jump to the conclusion that they had "a senior moment" or they were swayed by "expensive art magazines".
