#J20 Speakout at Whitney Museum
general

On #J20- the day of Trump's inauguration ceremony in Washington DC, I organized a speakout with artists, poets, and activists responding to the following questions at the Whitney Museum.

  1. Where is the agency of cultural institutions who depend on philanthropy under an illiberal system that rewards the 1% lavishly.
  2. How can cultural institutions oppose the state to support and protect their workers and artists who are citizens under threat?
  3. What specific cultural histories need to be revisited in this political climate to learn from, to revise, to renew, or to newly criticize?
  4. How can cultural institutions begin a process of self-reflection and dialogue in order to assess their complicity in our nation’s arrival at this political moment
