Artblog | Curators Work to Decolonize Western Art Museums
Kemuel Benyehudah weighs in about the importance of the work and activism of Black curators in collecting institutions, and spoke with curator Dr. Brittany Webb on her efforts at PAFA and beyond:
“There is an urgency for me to see an exhibition like that to think it’s actually a huge responsibility to make the choice that some artwork is worth storing and preserving. Give it real estate in a building like this (PAFA). Do the research on it, so you can write a label. So you know how to talk about it. So that you’re not misrepresenting the history of a whole form as whiter and more narrow than it actually is."
