Now very important, but small museum that really we all heard were struggling during the shutdown was the tenement museum. What's going on with the tenement Museum? Oh, this is you know, the tenant Tenement Museum is really such a treasure of New York. As I know, you know, it teaches about immigration by showing you how people lived at the turn of the last century brings you into actual apartment. Of course, those apartment really, really small spaces, and so they can't open yet And so it's really struggling. And they laid off 76 employees during this period, including all of their part time educators were the people who take you around take around school groups They know literally everything. About this period are History Museum is fundraising on their website, so you can do that You can do virtual private events There were you interact with cure eaters.

Building Strategic Partnerships with Shelley Worrell, Founder of caribBEING
"Tell us what is being and what is your job behind his project. Sir So we actually envisioned a an interesting so when we started we the first very first program that we put up with Bob. Hope for months and really it was about. It was an extension of all of my worth in and I wouldn't say my my work but also my travels right so my undergraduates is cultural studies and with the concentration on Rabin and then in Grad School. I and that's making up with Kirby I am. I always saw content right. Tv though distributed content as being a huge gap in the Caribbean space. Why are we not seeing ourselves? Elected in media Caribbean space. Do you mean like Caribbean however like looking at me Erica programming period right. So whether it's you know programming featuring people crimen stories premium people. I saw that as a huge gas. And and the other thing I had issues with for Sorta you know the way. Tourism is package in the region. So I started Grad school studying cultural heritage tourism and I ended up making a pivot to media studies but both programs are really about addressing these problems directly either through tourism cultural heritage tourism. Which again my life has come full circle and or media or a little bit about like some of the issues that you see in cultural tourism because when okay so I spend a lotta time in like crown heights and flatbush Andy's areas and you know having affinity for like I guess like Dancehall and musical from you know the islands like Calypso Soka. It may be but that's also just because of like influences that I've got as a young person growing up in New York but was Indians like for like people are not familiar with them like they kind of a lot of people on it like a paint them in one brush shirt so I kinda like how certain South Americans are. All the guys are all Mexicans Asians or deemed as you guys are all Chinese when people think like Zinnias. They're like oh you guys are all you guys all speak. Patois guys you must love so for those of us. That are not familiar. You know like. Can you kind of describe? Tell his like what are some issues that you see and you know like how tourism is packaged when it represents you know Caribbean and like just some of the misconceptions where like if you could kind of explained there actually differences between Trinidad Haiti Jamaica Right. Yeah Yeah I mean that's like a whole I mean we do a series on average version but at a couple things that I would mention one thing is when you think about Carnival right here on. Carnival has become wildly popular. Soka is trending around the world. And I talk about this. A lot with my friends In the region as well as here meaning in the region the Caribbean region and become overly. It's like sex tourism right so when you look at Soka you just think about women whining right and and of course but from the culture are not right. It's some it's sort of like this thing that you want to engage in right but there's so in but in a very overtly sexual manner right so you know so I think like the over sexualization of the female body has become like a very prevalent issue in in Carnival Culture. And that's you know throughout the region and and that's really not what carnival is about right. It's what's becoming right. And when you think about like you know carnival now you're thinking you're thinking beads. You're thinking you know that I can go line on somebody right or you know now. It's not only wining on people. I mean you're seeing men are touching women right like without their permission and you know we can be in the talk about this two years ago at the Brooklyn Museum as part of our residency. Because you know women got shot in During Juba because she refused to dance with someone and he just shot her I wa. I heard about that I lived on Rami like Juvie. Has A for people from from those areas. Juve has a juvenile. Tends to always have some issues like recently. I mean there was a lot of news around it right but I mean I think a lot of hype too right so and just misinformation and mischaracterizing the whole event with an associated with violence. So for those of us. That are not familiar with what you say. As is the event that were like the party. I guess it's not a party is the opening of the opening of the night before a day of the car that is correct and it typically starts at three four o'clock in the morning and that's how the tradition was brought here but again because there's so many people participating in Juve and they're and they're repackaging it as something else something that it's not right and not really understanding the roots in the origins of this cultural celebration. Then that's when things start to like to the sexual violence of that point right exactly and then of course it's nighttime so it's very easy to you know for people who are going to do bad things whether to or not come out because there are large people out on the situation right and and so you know. I think that's one of the things about curbing culture that is you know. Sort of like skewing in the wrong direction. It's it's you know the way we've been describing it. It's it's feels like sex tourism almost Like people go to Thailand and different. Tally like people actually really by prostitutes over daylight whereas in right whereas not there's a there isn't like a transaction per se contacts. You know because you feel like you're going to have a transact right right elise like you know the the intention is necessarily like okay like I appreciate what is simple symbolizes is more so like you see like pretty woman and loud outfits that are you scantily clad for lack of a better term and then I can do whatever I want right You know because of course they're dancing in a particular way which may be essential or sex scene look sexual so if feels like a ripe opportunity for some that you can actually engage in this elicit behavior so I mean that was one of the things You know I think that's one of the things that I've been thinking about for for a couple of years now And just observing I am I have to SAMA masquerader. I go to the Carribean a band. I I play mass and I I played. I've played played mass and Guadalupe lightly. Explain what that means for people because you know like when my home is used to some air like I was. I didn't understand what that meant. Cathala terms like right so mass is short for masquerade and during Carnival In most countries in in fact I in every country that I can think of their different groups even Brazil right there. Different groups which Organize around a particular theme right. So let's say we're playing canal street or Chinatown Right. All the costumes in that particular band will have a Chinatown FEM- right and and and actually perform or to participate in. That band is called playing mass right and so in my experience throughout the Caribbean Going to carnival because again. I'm a masquerader whether you know I'm in the French Caribbean or the English. Speaking Caribbean I have not played mass in the Dutch or the Spanish speaking Caribbean or even in North America Because I've played here in Brooklyn as well as in Miami You know I always play mass because I'm a person who cannot just spectate. I want to participate and I've been playing since I was a teenager but now I have been spectating for couple of years and partially because I don't like what I see it and you know and I think it's a little problematic Also getting a little older. I'm not I'm not young but I'm not old so I'm also like to have the energy for that so I want to hear that physical preparation that goes involved. As do I saw the body ribons? Well so I think that kind of dove into growing up in flatbush and And travelling to Caribbean during the summers and The washer ethnic heritages sure. I usually don't talk about it. I always say I'm the Caribbean or hair politician. But both my parents are from Trinidad. So and the unique thing about my parents that's really important to know is both. My parents loved the eldest. My father is one of thirteen. My mother is one of seven. They're both number one and they both were the first to come to America and largely responsible for bringing most of their relatives. They bought their own. They bought everyone. They filed for everyone So parents will mothers because only my grandmother. My grandfather came and aunts uncles and dozens and dozens and dozens of cousins. I come very very large family so my God. Think lease into The because when people like I said earlier when he would think like. You're from Caribbean from a Caribbean nation. Like people don't Associate Jamaica's such a big brand people just automatically. Lake Brand Jamaica is like a real thing right so people just assume like you're Jamaican if you're from the islands you're probably going to eat. Beef patties not even jerk chicken. I don't even think that many people know about jerk chicken Liz. You're from New York

"A private account you could block to your heart's content but if you are using it in official capacity and you have that interactive component to what is it's happening on your account and then you start banning people because you don't like them or blocking people because you don't like their viewpoint is unconstitutional. I mean this this brings back the heady days of Giuliani to mind when <hes> I don't know if our listeners remember review even remember Manual Remember Jasim. I'm talking specifically about the issues with the Brooklyn Museum of art when there was I think it was a Sachi exhibit where there was a <hes> a depiction of the Virgin Mary with Elephant Dung on her and and Giuliani had had decried this and said that he was going to stop op funding to the Brooklyn Museum because he didn't like this and it was offensive to Catholics <hes> and again that was also viewpoint discrimination. Say you know you just can't do that. When you're acting in a governmental capacity you know? I think what I'm hearing what I'm hearing. The more important thing is that <hes> history and the way this is recorded will not block these opinions from whether whether it's irrespective of whether he is is actually viewing the commentary in real time or protecting himself as I was alluding to the real crux is that in in the historical norcal record as this goes down those conversations will be recorded and have to be and you know speaking of history. I think it's a great segue to just read the final paragraph of this decision because I think it really sums it all up in sums up the <hes> the strange time that we live in <hes> judge Parker writes the irony in all of this is that we right at a time in history of in the history of this nation when the conduct of our government and its officials is subject to wide open robust obits debate this debate encompasses is an extraordinarily broad range of ideas and viewpoints generates a level of passion and intensity the likes of which have rarely been seen this debate as uncomfortable and unpleasant as it frequently may be is nonetheless a good thing in resolving this appeal we remind the lead against and the public that if the First Amendment means anything it means that the best response to disfavored speech on matters of public concern is more speech not less. I agree with that certainly and does that mean that <hes> <hes> everybody's unblocking our as what's happening now no in fact people that are blocked already ruminating that you know the president's probably not going to follow this decision and lock them and then you know you could bring a uh you could try to hold the president in contempt for not on blocking you remember. This is the second circuit. Let's couldn't twitter just disabled his unblocking feature for that account they could do that they could. They could fix this twitter. Fix this this film fix all the things we keep complaining could and then they could reactivate at once he is no longer in office and it becomes private property once again well yeah but I you know I'm tired of waiting to patients. We need to do things now. You know look what people in the other parts the world do they take action. Look you know in Hong Kong that kind of thing. That's what we need to do anyway. <hes> not enough time to go into all my wishes <hes>. Let's look at a couple of pieces of e mail that we got from listeners that O._T.. H At twenty six hundred dot com on the July third off the hook last week. We talked about the Berks family residential center <hes> this list no said. I'd like to share some additional information with you I to Kyle's point burkes is not a family name. It's the name of the county all right point taken <hes> but I ask.

"It was at a by Bergara Milstein who is. Curator at the Brooklyn museum for many years, and the regional show is one hundred and twenty inches, and it was really sort of like a grab bag of different types of styles and photographers. And when we decided to relook at this and decided, maybe it needed a new, a new edit. One of the things we really wants focused on, it's just WPA photographers with no commercial photographers just hire who are working for the WPA. But also we started to whittled down to a certain aesthetic and what we're really drawn to is this sort of street photography, straight documentary aesthetic because it was so much more truthful and gave you much more of an impression of walking out into the nineteen thirties, New York City. And also these were taken at a time when photography was rather unique these days. I mean, everybody's photography of everyone's taking pictures, but a lot of these photographs here. Especially where people are aware of the camera, having picture taken was more of an event at that point. I think some of these people and some of these people might be the only first time they might. They actually been photographed. It's possible. Yeah, certainly. If you were a fish peddler, pushcart vendor, something like that you'd probably was not something people were normally taking photographs. So I mean, there's, you know, the person who's tried the most famous person in the show is Charlie Wagner who is a famous tattoo artists on the Bowery. So he may have had his photograph taken before, but honestly. I've not seen that many photographs of even of him and I know people who've done research. Can you talk a little bit about the the musical archives, maybe the history of a bit, the size of the scope of some of the interesting collections yet. Well, the New York City Munis bark is the archive of the city government of New York City established in the nineteen fifties and are collections go back to the sixteen hundreds though to the Dutch colonial era. We have photographic collections dating back to the mid eighteen hundreds, but really the the bulk of our collection start around nine thousand nine hundred hundred which is when the city really started using photography to document projects that they were involved in. So ninety nine percent of our photographs come from city employed photographers who are working for different city agencies. The WPA is one of our few exceptions where we accession this from from a federal agency, but. Collections, or is it all by donation. Yeah. Now we have know we have no acquisition budget. It's it's an and are collecting policy is really just to collect a the government records graded by government where there's a show here now from the summer of nineteen seventy eight New York Times her dog reversal. When there was a newspaper strike, they went to work for the parks department, correct, right. He radically those photos. Thirdly, those guest should be in our. But then they will, and they will be someday. You're, you're conservation and storage techniques. And most of these, I assume store our from original film. Yeah, medium format film. Well, in this. There was a number of different formats and film that the WPA photographers use. So so we have in this show, things that are originally on eight by ten negatives to thirty five millimeter negatives and everything in between. The original negatives have been in frozen storage for many years. Location, what he's doing. Well, our offices at thirty one chamber street. It's a surrogates court building, and that's where those particular negatives are stored. But we also have a warehouse in Brooklyn at industry city where we have a freezer farm of of negative storage. But we're, we're in the process of building out a new climate controlled warehouse space out at industry city with a big walk in freezer box. So which is my dream come true. So photos are still being added to this collection yo, yeah, yeah. When I I've been there for twenty one years, and when I started, we used to say we had a million photographs that we took in some other like huge film collections. And now we have about five million photographs and other any photos, let's say, well, we may call famous photos or I conduct photos that are house than owned by the municipal archives, something that regular person which is back well, I mean the most iconic Scott to be the Eugene to salad MAC photograph of the workers..

"Mazdas talks is Friday, which this year has a special focus on the achievements of women in out history. Well, Elia and spoke to Monaco's Tom whole about work and some of the challenges that women continue to face women in arts and culture facing the very same issues that they're facing everywhere, right? We've made a lot of progress, but as we can see in the states from this past week in this cavenaugh era that we haven't made enough advances and it still. Too easy to diminish the input in the experiences of women. And this is a time period of women yet again, rallying as they did in the suffer jet movement to say time's up no more. We will not be discounted. We will be discredited and we will participate. And in fact, we're going to shape culture. We're going to shape our politics. So I hope great deal of good comes out of this moment. That is my dream and the Brooklyn museum has been on this for a long time. I'm one of the few women major museum directors in the country. I'm the first major museum director in New York City. There are lots of women museum directors, but not of an institution of the scale, and we're the only museum in the country and maybe in the world that has at them in arts center. So I hope that the rest of the field will catch up to where the Brooklyn museum has been in terms of its inclusion and social responsiveness, you must have a fall mocking oil in the. Than I do a you seeing interesting coming out of this moment specifically, we just actually installed in our Sackler center. Elizabeth Sackler center for feminist art collection highlights exhibition where we take a look at the metoo movement. We look at times up. We look at even from a more recent, you know, decades historical lens, how artists have been responding male and female and everybody on the LGBTQ I a. plus spectrum, how they've been responding to the issues of inclusion. We see it as a larger, not just a women's issue, but a really human rights issue. So we're seeing constantly artist responding to this including some contemporary works that we've recently purchased by artists like Betty Tompkins, that has been making a series of works about the me too movement on before you came to the Brooklyn museum. You worked for another organization creative time. They fell integral in the two beams of light, which replaced the World Trade Center towers tribute in light..

"So you're suggesting because they own the company that created these drugs, and so many Americans died because of this you like into the word you use genocide that this and other drugs in the opioid crisis. It wasn't only this drug, but there's was the main one, but that this family should face criminal charges that they should be made to pay because they're the ones who made the money off of these drugs that caused countless deaths in the USA, and I don't know the, you know, the fact of who knew what do you have to have a criminal investigation. And I don't know whether it should be executives that face that Justice or family members. I don't know what family members new, but you'd have to do that properly bit. But the fact that you can have that many people die in a crisis that we all now agree the national emergency. In part because who is doing those drugs versus who does other drugs that doesn't qualify as an emergency. But that's a whole other show. But you're saying that because white folks were the ones who were principally all agree that's an emergency instead of you know, epidemic and. What I would just amazing to me is that we let this happen to us. And we and we allow ourselves to be bought for not that much money. I mean, the this family made billions of dollars. They're on recently in one of the recent years. They were the Forbes family that kind of made the most new money in in a certain period. Most of that money came from this drug and today their descendants are on the boards at the museum. The Brooklyn museum has a like Sackler center. You know, artists take the patronage we all enjoy the museums. And I think what we all have to consider is what is our relationship to that kind of art when it is the art of blood money, the art of blood money. So you make the case that you know, we're selling ourselves for not much money. And by that you're saying that the charity is the price that they are paying. That's how they're buying us cheap. It do I understand that correctly. What are we supposed to do? It's an I'll tell you a general. There's a what I call the law most of the harmed under the society is of the b been billions at it. You earn billions doing the harm? And then most of that the charity that you that you do to change your reputation and get some nice stories than his papers with an M. It's in the millions. So that's a pretty good. That's usually a pretty good deal. You know, you you you profit from the mortgage crisis. That's usually in the billions a lot of people lose their homes. Then you donate to program to help women or to a shelter, and that's usually in the millions. So these companies are able to. Essentially, build a winners. Take all economy and winner take all society in which they're the only ones who can win because of how they organize it. And then they, you know, sprinkle a little fairy dust of charity on the people who are left out. And it's not that it doesn't help those people, and it's not that it's not kind. But it's less kind than it looks when you are also part and parcel of the operation to deprive those people of opportunity in the first place, you speak about going to these elites circles where they made some pretty strange, Chuck's two positions. You attended a seminar where Plato and Gandhi were lumped together with former G E CEO, Jack Welsh. I know that should have been the first sign I mean. Yeah. When I was when I was in this Aspen program, and we had these readings and you've got to read, you know, great thinkers, right history. As part of your your journey of thinking about how you want to play a bigger role in how you want to solve social problems. And so there was the Gandhi. And there was the Plato, and there was you know, other great ratings, and then, you know, you've you turn the page, and it's like Jack Welsh, and you think. But that's what's interesting is. You know, I I sat not long ago next to a French journalists an event, she's not the difference between America and other countries as you know. In America business, not just share economy. It's your culture, and I think in this country part of what has happened. But taking the last generation is that we've let business people would be more than business people. I mean, there's nothing wrong with by for a dollar and sell for to this on the wire. That's business. That's fine. Great. Good luck. Enjoy. But when business people become thinkers when they will come philosophy and look at an airport bookstore. Right. We don't just let these people find, Sal. We turn them into our grows, and what that has done. It has allowed them to give them a platform to push their vision of change on us and to make us forget what real change looks like. So that they win at the same time that they're trying to help some years ago. There was a parody account called GS elevator. Goldman Sachs elevator that purported to say things over in the elevator and that account provided the best definition of win win that I've heard a win win is when I beat you twice.

"That that case also went to court in jury trial but the museum the brooklyn museum preemptively sued and said you know ask the judge don't let them cut off our our public funding and the judge said yeah we're not going to let that happen because the rationale as it's unconstitutional for a government to discriminate against basically withdraw funding for a viewpoint that it disagrees with now that's different from the obscenity test that was upheld his constitutional by the supreme court where that's you know the rationale is this is one factor that we're taking into consideration it's not that the government is discriminating against you know one voice or one opinion so given the giuliani lost in court on constitutional grounds shut down the brooklyn museum show or withdraw city funding from it given that the cincinnati the museum in cincinnati and its director were found not guilty in court but that the supreme court did allow the federal government to put that decency test on things that might get national endowment for the arts funding and given that we don't hear about these kinds of controversies about art today would you say that somebody one and somebody lost the arts culture wars of the nineteen nineties was sort of a mixed bag in that you know you can't withdraw funding from the government of a of a publicly funded institution because you don't like what they've already mounted but there's been a chilling effect on artists because of the new restrictions by the nea well you hit the million dollar question right which is like who won the culture wars i think that's still an open question i would say that essentially artists today can do almost anything they want without fear of government reprisal the culture war battle of the nineties is distinct from the culture war battles of today because they're no longer happening in a courtroom and that's for this reason that the supreme court has carved out very strong first amendment protections for artists their decision in the case only applies well it's limited to basically whether the the as decision making process about granting funding i mean you saw the nea facing potential elimination under president donald trump's proposed budget and when that's happened you know congress has basically mounted a bipartisan effort to say no and that sort of speaks to the way in which it's no longer a controversial agency in the way it once was and that you know conversations around race representation who has the right to use what a subject matter those those conversations are playing out in on social media they're playing out in the pages of newspapers and they're playing out on on radio shows like this but they're not playing out in the courtroom if you're just tuning in we are in our series the eight a brief history of the culture wars decade by decade where in nineteen ninety eight or comparing the culture wars in the arts then and now with is a kaplan from artsy and charleston staten island has a memory of being involved in these arts culture was of the nine hundred ninety eight era charles you're on wnyc thanks for calling hey brian yeah actually i was on interestingly enough full size of the fence if you will i represented an artist by the name of scotla bago who was offended by the madonna being depicted in elephant song so he went to the brooklyn museum actually what's the prospect park got a bucket of horse manure and that was his medium that he's through at the exterior walls of the museum in protest he was interestingly enough subject to government intervention and arrested for his free speech and he was taken away and of course i use the first amendment as grounds to have the case dismissed which it was and for the record i have represented al goldstein scene of screw magazine six times so it's not as though i had you know choosing the subject matter as as the reason to represent the man i feel that every artists including scotla beta had the right to express himself and in fact the sensation exhibit drew out what it was it invoked motion it invoked a response from the public and is an excellent thing to do and i'm glad that it was there but i'm also glad it's got a beta was able to form his art interesting footnote to the.
