“Now we’re leaving the hall of stuff we stole from other cultures and entering the hall of stuff we paid too much for.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A black, white, and grey cartoon depicts an adult guide leading 6 children through a museum’s galleries. The gallery on the left looks like it’s displaying objects from Native American and First Nations Northwest Coast cultures, 3 masks and a textile or mantle. On the right is a gallery of framed paintings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @newyorkercartoons ・・・ A cartoon by @caitlin.cass, from 2018. #TNYcartoons ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌈Shoutout to @ricebananas and @ytunaomitambien for knowing this cartoon is very Marabou ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marabouatthemuseum #museums #museumeducation #museumstudies #museumtour #rethinkmuseums #reimaginemuseums #repatriation #uncomfortabletruths #newyorker #newyorkermagazine #newyorkercartoons

Join @decolonizethisplace and Marabou on October 8th, Indigenous People’s Day at the American Museum of Natural History. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @decolonizethisplace ・・・The work and preparation by over ten groups has begun. This requires us all. This is not about the museum in a way, it’s about all the sights of injustice in our city and a machine of white supremacy that allows for a Trump and a Kavanaugh and more prisons since 1492. Spread the word. #decolonizethisplace ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #decolonizemuseums #decolonize #museumstudies

🌈Marabou has been on brief hiatus and will return in full form next week. In the meantime, check out the Guerrilla Girls’ guide to writing museum labels about artists who are also sexual abusers and assailants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ | #Repost @caavisual | The Guerrilla Girls have created a new poster intended to help museums respond to the #MeToo movement. “In every institution there is probably [a debate] going on right now, trying to figure it out,” the Guerrilla Girl who goes by the name Kathe Kollwitz said. “We thought we’d help them.” #GuerrillaGirls via Javier Pes/ @artnet, first image by Jess Worth, Culture Unstained ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marabouatthemuseum #museums #artmuseum #artistbiography #arthistory #painter #chuckclose #timesup #museumstudies #museumlabel
