San Francisco Museum Curator Resigns After His "White Supremacist"-Informed Philosophy of Art Collection Is Exposed

And what's "white supremacy" now?

"White supremacy" means describing efforts to diversify the artists collected, but reassuring people that "white artists will also still be collected" because to completely ban white artists from the museum would be "reverse discrimination."

That is now "white supremacy" requiring a forced resignation.

"Gary's removal from SFMOMA is non-negotiable," read the petition. "Considering his lengthy tenure at this institution, we ask just how long have his toxic white supremacist beliefs regarding race and equity directed his position curating the content of the museum?"

This accusation -- that Garrels' choices as an art curator are guided by white supremacist beliefs -- is a very serious one. Unsurprisingly, it does not stand up to even minimal scrutiny.

The petitioners cite few examples of anything even approaching bad behavior from Garrels. Their sole complaint is that he allegedly concluded a presentation on how to diversify the museum's holdings by saying, "don't worry, we will definitely still continue to collect white artists."

Garrels has apparently articulated this sentiment on more than one occasion. According to artnet.com, he said that it would be impossible to completely shun white artists, because this would constitute "reverse discrimination." That's the sum total of his alleged crimes. He made a perfectly benign, wholly inoffensive, obviously true statement that at least some of the museum's featured artists would continue to be white. The petition lists no other specific grievances.

36 You know, there are only so many wealthy white patrons who are willing to underwrite this crap. Just like the theatre bullshit from a few days ago, this will drive away some of the major funders of that museum. I'm willing to bet that Gary was well-liked by some of them.

And you don't just lose one. The wealthy donors and board members would solicit gifts from their wealthy friends, too (and would also contribute to their friends' pet charities, too). Not to mention those who could direct a sizable donation from a business "charitable" foundation.

So, not that I'm likely to hear about it, but I'm sure a future article will be written about the SF art museum having to shut programs or something or other due to economic conditions causing a drop in donations, and no one will ever draw the line back to something like this.

102 The Actual Truth - Cities like San Francisco, and Portland, and Seattle, and all the other "woke" cities do not DESERVE to have true Art Museums of actual, classic works. They deserve to have Museums which are full of nothing but shelves full of the turds of Famous Woke Leaders, and all of their people can be herded through and forced to say Oh Yes that is the Most Artistic Thing I Have Ever Seen.

and the actual Art needs to be shipped out to private collections in Flyover Country, where it can be appreciated by those who still can.

103 If the best that black artists have to offer is their official Obama portraits , no thank you. Thankfully it's not.

Terry Crews. He would make extra money when he was struggling to make the NFL by doing portraits for various teammates.

Every crazy black activist makes me resent blacks more, if I'm not carefully Christian and remembering all of us are children of God, sinners in need of a savior, and skin color is as relevant as being left or right handed.

Every crazy black activist makes me resent blacks more, if I'm not
carefully Christian and remembering all of us are children of God,
sinners in need of a savior, and skin color is as relevant as being left

But that seems to be the goal, to ramp up racial animosity and
anger, which does not strike me as a very useful or survivable goal for
minorities.

The two main museums in SF I've visited (Legion of Honor and the de Young) have been begging for donations since the first lock-down in March; I would have donated to the Legion as they maintain a very nice collection of REAL art, but couldn't be sure some of the money might go to the de Young, which maintains a permanent collection of abstract, social-justice crap with only an occasional foray into actual art when they host a visiting exhibit from someplace sane.

You'd think government encouraging the arts would be anathema to most artists.

Here's my unpopular opinion: artists should always have a patron they have to keep happy.

If your art doesn't have at least some kind of paying audience then what good are you?

To the extent government funding facilitates the freedom of artists to work without the need to at least some of the time make something that someone buys, it's actually unhealthy for the artist. And the art suffers. And so does society.

Posted by: Heart of Darkness at July 14, 2020 04:23 PM (nFRLh)

the Cultural Revolution, which started in 1966, was a 'progressive' attempt to get rid of everything of the old Chinese Culture. Its history, its statues, its monuments.

Any mention of anything good it had done, was purged.

During this period, they created 'Red Guard' units of Revolutionaries, who replaced the Police (they were disbanded)

Anyone denounced by the Red Guard, lost their Jobs, at first. Later, they were 'reducated'

Everyone had to go though Training on the 'new' history, and what it was OK to say in public.

Mao used this 'movement' to secure his power, by using "Peoples Courts" to denounce his enemies, and then any rivals.

IS any of this sounding familiar?

A real defense of liberalism must be that a free society is for everyone. The only people who find a free society oppressive are totalitarians. Cancel culture and its vanguard of Marxists, black nationalists, and assorted radicals find a free society oppressive because it restricts their freedom to destroy some people and force everyone else to conform to their ideology.

A free society isn't racially oppressive, but it can be ideologically oppressive for totalitarians.

I think the "What have the Romans ever done for us?" line is a joke from "Life of Brian." The whole point is that they gave us nearly everything.

Here's the full scene:

Reg: All right, Stan. Don't labour the point. And what have the [Romans] ever given us in return?
Xerxes: The aqueduct.
Reg: Oh yeah, yeah they gave us that. Yeah. That's true.
Masked Activist: And the sanitation!
Stan: Oh yes... sanitation, Reg, you remember what the city used to be like.
Reg: All right, I'll grant you that the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done...
Matthias: And the roads...
Reg: (sharply) Well yes obviously the roads... the roads go without saying. But apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads...
Another Masked Activist: Irrigation...
Other Masked Voices: Medicine... Education... Health...
Reg: Yes... all right, fair enough...
Activist Near Front: And the wine...
Omnes: Oh yes! True!
Francis: Yeah. That's something we'd really miss if the Romans left, Reg.
Masked Activist at Back: Public baths!
Stan: And it's safe to walk in the streets at night now.
Francis: Yes, they certainly know how to keep order... (general nodding)... let's face it, they're the only ones who could in a place like this.
(more general murmurs of agreement)
Reg: All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?
Xerxes: Brought peace!
Reg: (very angry, he's not having a good meeting at all) What!? Oh... (scornfully) Peace, yes... shut up!

352 Whites in south Africa were outnumbered by a pretty huge percentage; it would really be the opposite. An apartheid system run by a minority of blacks to keep white down and under control.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at July 14, 2020 04:38 PM (KZzsI)

When Afrikaners were not under sanction from America, they racked up some really lopsided victories against Mandela. And black South Africans were far more skilled and justified than any American orc could hope to be.

It's not going to come to white genocide. Either civic nationalism or repatriation. The latter is more likely and consistent with the spirit of things.

The Roman's didn't have noodles. They were invented later, in the medieval era.

There is now evidence that Italians made pasta prior to Marco Polo's expeditions, so it's likely a case of simultanous but separate inventions -- the Chinese and the Italians both invented noodles on the opposite sides of the world, without knowing of the other one's invention.

Same thing happened with other inventions as well -- the bow and arrow, iron smelting etc. Independently invented in multiple places.

They are propagandists, playing the only gamy they know how and doing so without even a modicum of skill. They have no business model. They are not businesses. They appear to be so on paper, but they are not. Profit and loss has no meaning. Quality has no meaning. Customers have no meaning. They are the playthings of those who use them to try to bring the advent of an eternal evil empire to our earthly world.

Do not try to understand them through any traditional tools, methods, means or standards. They do not apply. The closest analogue is that they are tools of the devil, looking to wreak havoc and bring down on destruction on all that is good or even neutral in this world. Does the devil care for profit or loss or a business model? Of course he doesn't.

Spontaneous invention is real, it has just been hard to detect until the industrial revolution. The Scottish intelligentsia came up with the notion of "steam engine time."

James Watt invented the steam engine. The Germans invented it nearly simultaneously. When word filtered back to Scotland, they said that it must have been "steam engine time."

Steam engines, radio, television, analogue computers, possibly even the theory of relativity (unconfirmed) had near-simultaneous discovery in multiple places. When it's steam engine time, steam engines *will* be invented.

I think it is G-d hedging his bets. We have free will, so multiple people get the fire to make sure it happens.

Not a clue. The fact that they know nothing historically is obviously on purpose. Still, even if I were uneducated in the sense of what it was and what its worldwide history was, along with what its techniques were and are, I'd still be getting enough of a bad feeling about it to, oh, say, pick up a frigging history book or two and read about it.

the Cultural Revolution, which started in 1966, was a 'progressive' attempt to get rid of everything of the old Chinese Culture. Its history, its statues, its monuments.

Any mention of anything good it had done, was purged.

During this period, they created 'Red Guard' units of Revolutionaries, who replaced the Police (they were disbanded)

Anyone denounced by the Red Guard, lost their Jobs, at first. Later, they were 'reducated'

Everyone had to go though Training on the 'new' history, and what it was OK to say in public.

Mao used this 'movement' to secure his power, by using "Peoples Courts" to denounce his enemies, and then any rivals.

IS any of this sounding familiar?

Romeo13, you are the one here that is ringing the bell about this.

2020 America has become a re-run of the Great Chinese Cultural Revolution.

Which wasn't great or cultural, but it was Chinese, and a Revolution.

What, 40 million died in a few years?


Seriously, you should write up a summary with your perspective, and email it to ACE or one of the COBs to publish it here as it's own topic.

Because what you have posted here, and in previous days, is SPOT ON.

And what is going on in America in July, 2020, is very similar to what happened in China in 1965-66.

No, a charge of "white supremacy" is incredibly un-serious in terms of having any meaning in a world even pretending to be governed by reason. "White supremacy" is do devoid of a factual definition as to make "evidence" either "for" or "against" a meaningless expression.... meaningless.

Henri Matisse
Jean Metzinger
Paul Klee
Marcel Duchamp
Andy Warhol
Jackson Pollock
Richard Diebenkorn
Clyfford Still
Ansel Adams
Alexander Calder
Chuck Close
Willem de Kooning
Anselm Kiefer
Ellsworth Kelly
Roy Lichtenstein
Brice Marden
Agnes Martin
Gerhard Richter
Richard Serra
Cy Twombly
That's just a few of the white people whose art is in the museum. I'm sure they will have to get rid of these now, since it's been revealed that they are all white supremacists.
