Should museums sell works of art? Plus, activism at the Whitney Biennial
As a Mark Rothko painting is sold by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, we talk to Christopher Bedford from the Baltimore Museum of Art about deaccessioning works by white male artists in order to diversify museum collections. And we speak to Marz Saffore, an organiser for Decolonize This Place, and Adam Weinberg, the director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, about the protests that have greeted this yearâ€™s Whitney Biennial. They relate to Safariland, a company owned by the museumâ€™s vice-chairman Warren Kanders, which manufactures tear gas canisters and other military products that have been used against asylum seekers along the US-Mexico border.

Warhol (part one)
An in-depth interview with Donna De Salvo, organiser of the vast Andy Warhol show at the Whitney Museum of American Art. De Salvo takes us through all the key Warhol landmarks, from his early life as a commercial artist through his 1960s Pop art breakthrough and his films and celebrity portraits, to his late appropriations of Leonardoâ€™s Last Supper and the catholicism that underpinned his interest in that work. We also hear about his relationship with a certain Donald Trump.
