In a shock announcement, The Aesthetics of Terror exhibition has been canceled. It was scheduled for launch this November at the Chelsea Art Museum and was an exhibit around two years in the making.
Artists were informed that museum president Dorothea Keeser felt that the show "glorified terrorism and showed disrespect for its victims."
In an act of protest to the decision, the museum's chief curator, Manon Slome, has resigned. This cancellation begs the question - If art cannot deal with these subjects, then who will?
