Statement from AAMC & AAMC Foundation: #NotSurprised

Earlier this week an
open letter signed by over 2,000 individuals in our arts community, including artists, curators, writers, and directors, stated “We will be silenced no longer.”  The accompanying site and ongoing social media discussions draw attention to the history and immense impact sexual harassment has in our sector. The Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) and AAMC Foundation stand with our colleagues in acknowledging that the climate condoning such actions is the the result of power dynamics pervasive within the arts and museum industry.  In making this statement we recognize sexual harassment goes beyond gender identification, age, career level, and more, and it can no longer be ignored.  AAMC & AAMC Foundation offer our support and solidarity.
