Getting cancelled …

 The Artist Formerly Known as Guston - Tablet Magazine. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)



The decision to postpone Guston’s exhibit is a regrettable mistake: At the heart of Guston’s work are the very personal questions of responsibility and complicity, of fear and even self-hatred. Trying to avoid any controversy, the directors prevented the public from engaging in difficult conversations, precisely when they’re most needed, in this fraught moment when both racism and anti-Semitism are on the rise, and many of the large cultural institutions are reckoning with their own history.
Revising, editing, and even deleting the past seems to make some people — often those with letters attached to their names — feel quite happy about themselves. Merely proving once again that being schooled doesn't necessarily make one educated.
