Opening Saturday, May 13th, from 6PM - 10PM
The Dangerous Professors, a curatorial project exhibiting over one hundred and fifty artists–educators, acts as a counter-action to the pervasive rightwing impulse whose spirit jeopardizes civil, artistic and academic freedom by calling out, shaming, and harming those it opposes.

WAYS OF SEEING: A NEW MUSEUM STORY FOR PLANET EARTH by Grace Ndiritu 4.26.17

As a homage to John Berger's hugely influential 1972 text Ways of Seeing which introduced the idea of the 'male gaze' to the general public and forever changed our understanding of how we should view painting—especially those of the naked female form, by merely not seeing these nude women as objects—I thought it would be good to continue an investigation into the questions raised within my first text Healing The Museum.
