Reactions to Smithsonian pulling art video in "Hide/Seek"
LA Times reported the video "A Fire in My Belly" is going to be shown at the CB1 Gallery.
"An appalling act of political cowardice," began an editorial in Tuesday's New York Times.
Christopher Knight, LA Times Arts critic, concluded Tuesday, "Will it work this time? The onslaught might damage art museums which would be lamentable. And Smithsonian acquiescence is a self-inflicted wound."
Artinfo.com Tuesday reported that New York's New Museum had received requests from around the world for copies of "A Fire in My Belly."
The Washington Post editorial Dec. 3 called the action by the Smithsonian "highly disappointing."
