In this week’s episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we’re joined by Charlotte Burns and Julia Halperin, co-creators of The Burns Halperin Report, which explores representation in U.S. museums and the international art market. First, Charlotte and Julia share some of the major takeaways from their report, in particular the lack of progress regarding museum acquisitions for female and minority artists. Then, they reveal if their findings, which conflict with recent narratives in the art media, were surprising to them. Also, Charlotte and Julia explain how social movements, such as Black Lives Matter and Me Too, have influenced museums’ activities. After, they clarify if there are any positive findings in their report or if it is entirely pessimistic. Lastly, Charlotte and Julia identify certain museums who are indeed doing a relatively good job which acquiring artworks by female and minority artists.
