This week, we talk to the critics and curators Barry Schwabsky and Aindrea Emelife about the four-year delay to the show Philip Guston Now at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the museums of fine arts in Houston and Boston and Tate Modern in London. What does the postponement of a big show of the American artist’s work tell us about museums’ response to art and race in the wake of Black Lives Matter? Also, Louisa Buck meets Maggi Hambling as a new show of her work opens at Marlborough Gallery in London. And in our Work of the Week, the artist Martha Tuttle talks about a medieval Visitation in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
