The Whitest Cube
Museums are really sensitive to critique.
We decided we don't care.
Introducing the Whitest Cube
The Whitest Cube is a podcast about the exclusionary history of art institutions from the perspective of people of color.
We're looking at the current practices that stem from their colonial history, sharing our stories, and highlighting movements that critique the status-quo and reveal potentially transformative paths forward.
We'll talk to artists, activists, scholars, and the city of Boston to envision a future for museums, and what we're doing to work through the present.
