Kansas City Arts Community Declares Solidarity With Black Lives Matter Movement

A money line and social justice reaffirmation from a top ranking and high-class local arts honcho . . .

"JuliΓ‘n Zugazagoitia, director/CEO of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, said the recognition of the fatal Minneapolis incident and its aftermath “brings into more focus the inequities and the systemic injustice that this country has harbored for many years.” 

Institutions such as art museums, he said, can help call attention to social movements that address such inequities. On its website, the Nelson-Atkins states its commitment to “the ideals of empathy, equity, inclusion, diversity and accessibility” and its support for Black Lives Matter."

For our truly classy readers, the Kansas City arts leader was recently featured in French newspaper Le Monde making the same assertions and trying to explain local layoffs at the Nelson.

A Singular American Moment - KC STUDIO

Unwarranted and unrestrained police violence against African Americans has long been a stain on the nation. But last May, the brutal killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis prompted a heightened awareness of that lingering problem - and an enhanced understanding of the Black Lives Matter movement and its struggle for racial justice.

Good post but make the connection.

Maybe the layoffs are a symptom of the misguided leadership. Most likely.

Cgc said...

Or dumb-ass. They're not related at all and there are fewer people going to museums and other arts presentations because of the pandemic.

Think about it.

^^^ definitely the layoffs!

If they really want to show solidarity they'll let the hood rats come in and tag the place.

White guilt retard.

I’m guessing the rich patrons that kept the place afloat have walked away taking their cash donations with them?

Tagging is the future art at the museum because, sucking up to the black community is what they do now. It’s the only art they know like burnt up buildings wrecked abandoned cars, empty Gerry curl, colt 45’s, champipple, cheap ass wine and gin bottles, crime scene tape, bullet casings everywhere, I’m tellin ya, it’s the wave of the future for the museum! Haha!

Did the suck up museum miss the opportunity to have blm painted on its streets?

"the fatal Minneapolis incident"

Is that what they're calling it now? Maybe it's at last a tacit recognition that George Floyd died from illegal drugs and not from police action.

Notice also that this dweeb's commitment to ideals includes every woke term he can think of but leaves out art. He will get invited to lots of wine and cheese parties but will ruin the Nelson.

TOP PHOTO -- THE ART OF COMPROMISE

When the privileged White male Progressive from Mission Hills decided to make a sacrifice for social justice, he gave his Black maid Thanksgiving Day off and gifted her a Cornish hen!!!

Will Julian z’s exotic accent be enough to continue to dazzle an utterly clueless art museum Board? Museum is hemorrhaging money under his stylish leadership

The Nelson needs to replace him with a black faggot.

FTW.

Makes sense to me. Talk all that shit ya want, but if ya love those domestic terrorists that much, what the fuck? Who needs a Rembrandt when all of those talented BLM activists can not only tag the works of art, that are in fact, products of the White Patriarchy, they can tear the fuckin heads right off of those ancient Egyptian slaver statues too?

I would imagine you'd call the terrorists who worked up a plot to kidnap a sitting governor "patriots," huh chuck?

Julian has never been farther east of the Nelson than a couple blocks and certainly NEVER after dark.
He needs to schedule a ride-along with the cops in East Patrol in the middle of the night.
Another clueless SJW from the financial 1% gang.
Irrelevant and sad.

Bandit said...

The Nelson will be insolvent soon. Wait for it. 😏🍿

I’m guessing this queer wasn’t good enough for New York and kc was stupid enough to hire him. Kc is full of expensive world wide rejects that’s for sure.

Hey great. Solidarity with white woke fraud. Far be it from these patricians to actually try to fix anything. Declaring solidarity is cheap, takes zero effort, and makes you look awesome!

Anonymous said...

Love or hate Chuck, he makes a good point - the vast majority of art in the Nelson could be tied to white history, white privilege, wealth disparity, etc. 1:05 makes a good point too; anyone with true ability in their field usually doesn’t stay put in Cowtown unless they can’t cut it in more sophisticated markets. For guys like Julian, it’s a win-win; he gets off on having Cowtown art “aficionados” licking him while they think they’re hanging with a real somebody.

If black lives matter then why do they kill each other at such a high rate?

Black Lives Matter ONLY when those lives are taken by whites.
The number one threat to black lives in this country is other Black's.
Hopefully the Nelson gets overrun with Plaza area 'Boons. I would love to see this dork chasing them from exhibit to exhibit, while they leave their normal wake of destruction. Maybe hes a genius and he is trying to do an end run for MORE security budget money next year?��

Only George Floyd could no breathe prior to being on the ground. Obviously the writer of the article hasn't viewed the entire tape. Fentynal is a bitch. A bitch that costs America trillions of dollars. Surely it would have been easier to show the whole video prior to rioting over another druggie criminal dying by his own use. Surely this article should not have implied he died by any other means. That is bad journalism. But common in 2020 Journalism.
