The Morgan Library & Museum, an internationally renowned museum and scholarly research center located in the heart of New York City, is ONLY exhibiting solo shows by white males in 2019. You can read their full list, released February 15, 2019, here: http://host.themorgan.org/press/2019AnnualPreviewPressRelease.pdf

This petition calls on the Morgan Library & Museum to ONLY exhibit solo shows by women in 2020, as a way to rectify their institutionally gender-biased programming of 2019. And, we challenge them to include a diverse array of women from many ethnicities and backgrounds in 2020. 

When esteemed and established arts institutions like the Morgan Library & Museum tell the world that only men deserve solo exhibitions, it deeply hurts the reputations of, and devalues the accomplishments by, women. When major institutions devalue women, it hurts the careers of living women artists both professionally and economically.

FIX IT 2020, MORGAN LIBRARY & MUSEUM! ONLY EXHIBIT SOLO SHOWS BY WOMEN IN 2020!
