ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM EXPLORES SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE ARTS WITH METOO DISPLAY

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement TORONTO – An upcoming exhibit featuring the work of controversial photographer Raghubir Singh will be accompanied by a display outlining sexual misconduct allegations against the late artist.The Royal Ontario Museum says it hopes to spark conversation with the concurrent program #MeToo & the Arts, meant to explore gender inequity.South Asian Art curator Deepali Dewan calls it a “milestone” in the way the museum handles difficult content, expecting the head-on approach to shape the way it handles future projects that may be problematic. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitter “Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs” offers a retrospective of a man who pioneered the use of colour film in capturing street scenes in India from the late 1960s to the 1990s. Singh died in 1999.The touring exhibit was the subject of a protest in New York last year by Brooklyn-based artist Jaishri Abichandani, who in previous reports has accused Singh of coercing her into sex during what she thought was a work trip to India.Both displays run July 21 to Oct. 21.Dewan says the #MeToo program is the result of lengthy consultations with Abichandani and Singh’s family, and an external advisory committee made up of leaders in the arts community and women’s advocacy. Abichandani could not immediately be reached for comment.“It’s difficult because there’s pain on all sides and we wanted to make sure we proceed in a respectful way,” says Dewan.She says the museum wants to be a place where visitors can tackle tough questions and address current debates.“We really want to be a civic hub at the ROM and we really want to be a place where important issues that are on our visitors’ minds that they’re talking about, that is relevant in their lives — we want to be a space where those things can be discussed. And it’s not easy. This is really, really hard.”She says the museum first heard of the allegations late last year, soon after the #MeToo movement came to the fore.“At that time in the #MeToo movement, it seemed like the only option out there that other institutions and industries were following were: When allegations came up, you would either cancel whatever you were doing or you would ignore it. It really felt to us like neither of those options were good,” says Dewan.“We are in a moment where museums are really grappling with what to do and there isn’t one clear answer,” she adds.“If we had another year or two years to work on this, maybe we would have made other choices. And if the artist was alive, let’s say, and there were active charges and an active case against it, we might have made different choices, as well.”She says the display will outline the allegations and how various museums have tackled the issue of sexual harassment against other artists. A third section will feature video clips of arts professionals reflecting on these issues.There will also be films, panel discussions and possibly live performances that address gender issues.Dewan says she expects the exhibit will mark a new approach to handling such thorny topics: “It’s not the first time and not the last time.”by Cassandra Szklarski | The Canadian Press Login/Register With: Facebooklast_img read more

KevinPrince Boateng set to make Barcelona debut tonight

first_imgNew Barcelona signing Kevin-Prince Boateng could make his debut in tonight’s Copa del Rey clash against SevillaThe 31-year-old forward made a shock loan transfer to Barcelona on Monday from Serie A side Sassuolo until the end of the season with the option of it becoming a permanent deal this summer for €8m.Barcelona’s decision to sign Boateng came in light of Munir El Haddadi’s departure to Sevilla earlier this month with Paco Alcacer leaving Camp Nou last summer for Borussia Dortmund.This had left Ernesto Valverde’s side short of centre-forward options with Luis Suarez bearing most of the workload this season.Now Barcelona have confirmed that Boateng has been named in a 19-man squad for the trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.The unsettled Denis Suarez, who has been heavily linked with a loan move to Arsenal this month, has been left out of the team for tonight’s first leg quarter-final clash.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.Also missing is Lionel Messi, who has been handed a rest by manager Valverde in favour of giving some academy stars like Riqui Puig a chance.Speaking ahead to the tie on Tuesday evening, Valverde warned his Barcelona team to not lose their focus as they chase a fifth successive Copa del Rey title this season.“Our analysis was based on the fact that they are a strong rival at home and in the knock-out ties they have always been very solid,” said Valverde in a press conference.“Sevilla are a great team with experience in the qualifying rounds and have the measure of this competition. They will be a tough team in this tie.”The last time these two sides met in the Copa del Rey came in last season’s final, which saw Barcelona thrash Sevilla 5-0 at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano to claim a 30th crown.The Sevilla and Barcelona Copa del Rey match will begin tonight in Andalusia at 21:30 (CET).last_img read more

In Major Shift Boy Scouts Says It Will Begin Allowing Girls To

first_img Share Mary Altaffer/APThe Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that it will begin welcoming girls into its programs “after years of receiving requests from families and girls.”In a move that shakes up more than a century of tradition, the Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that starting next year, it will welcome girls into some Scouting programs.The BSA said in a statement on its site that girls can join its Cub Scouts program starting in 2018. It will be up to existing packs to decide whether they will remain all-boys, go co-ed or create all-girl divisions. Cub Scout dens, which are smaller units of six to eight kids within packs, will remain single-gender.As for older girls, the organization says it will announce a program next year that will enable them to earn the highest rank of Eagle Scout. It hopes to have the program in place in 2019.“This unique approach allows the organization to maintain the integrity of the single gender model while also meeting the needs of today’s families,” BSA said.The decision comes after years of requests from families, the organization said. “Most are dual-earners and there are more single-parent households than ever before, making convenient programs that serve the whole family more appealing.”It added that the move is also geared toward Hispanic and Asian communities, which are “currently underserved” and “prefer to participate in activities as a family.”The Boy Scouts serves more than 2 million young people, according to last year’s annual report. The organization has moved to become more inclusive, after years of declining membership — announcing in 2013 that it would admit openly gay youths and ending a blanket ban on gay leaders in 2015. Earlier this year, the group announced it would admit transgender boys.As The Two-Way reported in August, the Boy Scouts had for months been “exploring the benefits of bringing Scouting to every member of the family — boys and girls,” according to spokeswoman Effie Delimarkos. That didn’t sit well with the Girl Scouts of the USA, whose leadership accused the Boy Scouts of running a “covert campaign to recruit girls.”In a scathing letter published by BuzzFeed News at the time, Girl Scouts National Board President Kathy Hopinkah Hannan called the Boy Scouts’ plan unsettling and said it would only serve to undercut the Girl Scouts. She added that a co-ed model goes against “research supporting single gender programming.”The Girl Scouts did not immediately respond to a request for comment following the Boy Scouts’ decision Wednesday.The Boy Scouts already has certain co-ed programs in place, including Venturers and Sea Scouts, both billed as character-building programs, and Exploring, which focuses on career building.The announcement about welcoming girls came on the International Day of the Girl, which the U.N. says, “aims to highlight and address the needs and challenges girls face, while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights.”Copyright 2017 NPR.
