About the Event
The director of the National Gallery of Art, Kaywin Feldman, joins Washington Post Live to discuss the controversy over the postponement of the Philip Guston exhibit – an anti-racist exhibition featuring Ku Klux Klan figures – and her stewardship of one of the nation’s preeminent art institutions at a time of racial reckoning. Eighty-three percent of National Gallery security staff are people of color compared with two percent of its curatorial staff. Feldman will discuss her decision to postpone the exhibit, the need for more Black curators in museums across the country and the impact calls for racial justice have had on the art world at large.
