IG Image from Decolonize This Place says, “We want this message to be received by the Whitney Museum. We would hate for this issue to interfere with their 2019 Biennial.” A quote below this reads “Keep a look for further activity at the Whitney. ‘We do not do one-offs’ Decolonize this place told artnet news in a Facebook message. ‘But we are also waiting to hear how the Whitney will respond after our action, and whether they will remove Warren B. Kanders.’”
