This week’s headlines were dominated by the news that the Museum of Contemporary Art will not clear away billionaire Leon Black from their board. Hyperallergic’s Jasmine Weber and Valentina Di Liscia join me to chat about this alongside with PEN America’s new handbook for persecuted artists, Mexico’s ask for that Christie’s auction house halt its sale of pre-Hispanic objects, the return of looted artifacts by the Museum of the Bible to Iraq and Egypt, and how some of the critical quilters of Gee’s Bend now have Etsy shops.
