The #MeToo movement has sparked a dialogue about sexual harassment and sexual misconduct that has had far reaching, and at times unexpected ramifications. For example, in December, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met) in New York was presented with a petition (now with over 11,000 signatures) to remove a Balthaus painting of a preteen girl in a suggestive pose from display. The Met declined, citing the work as an “opportunity for conversation.” Meanwhile in January, JW Waterhouse’s work, “Hylas and the Nymphs,” was temporarily removed from Manchester Art Gallery as part of a performance piece by Sonia Boyce. In connection with the removal, visitors were invited to post notes about the gallery’s decision to remove the work in the location where the painting once hung. The comments that poured into the gallery ranged from criticism of the gesture to celebration of the critical lens with which the public was invited to engage with the work.
