“The National Gallery and three other major museums” — Tate Modern in London and the Museums of Fine Arts In Houston and Boston — “had announced that they were delaying the retrospective, which was originally intended to begin its tour last June, after taking into account the surging racial justice protests across the country. … Some critics said the decision to delay the retrospective amounted to self-censorship fueled by fear of controversy.” – The New York Times

The artists who signed a letter objecting to the postponement of a Guston show make a lot of potentially “controversial” art themselves, but “the artists are motivated by more than self-interest.

Philip Guston Bluster: Why It’s Wise to Postpone a Show Depicting Cartoonish Ku Klux Klan Figures

Knowing that I’m sticking my head into a lion’s mouth, I strongly disagree with sanctimonious art critics, artists and scholars who have piled on against a decision by four museum directors to postpone (not to cancel) their Philip Guston Now retrospective. – Lee Rosenbaum

"But the people who run our great institutions do not want trouble. They fear controversy. They lack faith in the intelligence of their audience."

"And they realize that to remind museum-goers of white supremacy today is not only to speak to them about the past, or events somewhere else. It is also to raise uncomfortable questions about museums themselves—about their class and racial foundations. For this reason, perhaps, those who run the museums feel the ground giving way beneath their feet. If they feel that in four years, 'all this will blow over,' they are mistaken. The tremors shaking us all will never end until justice and equity ar...

Sense or censorship? Row over Klan images in Tate’s postponed show

Philip Guston depicted ‘the banality of evil’ but galleries in the UK and US fear his work could be misinterpretedBest known for his abstract art, Philip Guston also dipped into figurative painting with a repeating motif of white-hooded Ku Klux Klan members. Now these images have caused the postponement of a major retrospective to honour him – and a heated row within the art world.Four institutions – the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Museum of Fine ...

4 major museums have postponed a retrospective for a highly respected painter — Philip Guston — because some of the paintings have images of the KKK.

I'm reading "Delay of Philip Guston Retrospective Divides the Art World/;Philip Guston Now' has become Philip Guston in 2024, after four museums postponed an artist’s show that includes Klan imagery."There's no reason to think Guston liked the Klan. It's for the viewer to gaze on these painterly cartoons... ... and wonder what the hell is this supposed to mean? or just to think hmmm, there's that or whatever you think in a museum... those bastions of white supremacy!Maybe you think, yeah, this i...

Blockbuster Philip Guston Show Postponed Over Concerns About KKK Imagery

On Monday, the National Gallery quietly posted a joint statement signed by directors of all four museums set to host the show: Kaywin Feldman (National Gallery), Frances Morris (Tate Modern), Matthew Teitelbaum (MFA Boston), and Gary Tinterow (MFA Houston). The statement said the exhibition was being pushed “until a time at which we think that the powerful message of social and racial justice that is at the center of Philip Guston’s work can be more clearly interpreted.” – ARTnews

Mexican Muralists Changed the Course of 20th-Century American Art. A New Exhibit Explores Their Influence

Jackson Pollock’s best-known influences include European greats like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. But often overlooked is the artist’s time at New York’s Experimental Workshop, founded in 1936 by David Alfaro Siqueiros, who along with Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco made up “los tres grandes” who led the postrevolution Mexican muralism movement. Siqueiros founded the Workshop in New York City in 1936, guided by the philosophy that in order to make truly radical art, artists must ...

“The Artist Project” Reveals What 127 Influential Artists See When They Look at Art: An Acclaimed Video Series from The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Photographer Nan Goldin’s celebrated series The Ballad of Sexual Dependency would likely have sent portraitist Julia Margaret Cameron reeling for her smelling salts, but the century that divides these two photographers' active periods is less of a barrier than one might assume. As Goldin notes in the above episode of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s online series, The Artist Project, both made a habit of photographing people with whom they were intimately acquainted.  (Cameron’s subjects...

Fabulous! Philip Guston & the Poets at Accademia in Venice - To Ernest, with Love

The Line by Philip Guston (1977) (Venice, Italy) I have eagerly anticipated the arrival of Philip Guston and the Poets. When I lived in the hills of Los Feliz, a section of Los Angeles, one of my dearest friends and neighbors was Ernest Lieblich, a wealthy German Jew who was a great supporter of the arts. One day, Ernest insisted that we dash to the City of Hope hospital to see a mural he had discovered. He drove, speeding down the freeway at age 82, to a decrepit building. After we enter...
