Beep beep!! New Art and Labor here! Your favorite podcast focusing on the on-going struggle to survive as an art or cultural worker. Hosted by O.K. Fox and Lucia Love. This episode we fill you in even more social justice activism happening in the late sixties/early seventies. We talk proto Guerrilla Girls, and we trace the legacy of the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s pressure on The Met, MoMA, and The Whitney to current protests of The Brooklyn Museum. We despair about the continued lack of representation in these institutions, and ponder the effectiveness of identity-based strategies. We also get into some contextual tangents about Art & Language, The Fox, and Artists Meeting For Cultural Change.
Much is pulled from the book “Art Gangs: Protest and Counterculture in New York City” by Alan W. Moore published by Autonomedia in 2011 and “Exhibiting Authenticity: The Black Emergency Cultural Coalition’s Protests of the Whitney Museum of American Art, 1968-71” by Caroline V. Wallace published in Art Journal in 2015.
