Dana Schutz painting causes controversy at the Whitney Biennial

At the opening of Whitney Biennial 2017, a small protest gathered at Dana Schutz’s painting ‘Open Casket’, which reimagines the iconic photograph of a 14-year-old lynching victim. And over 25 black artists signed an open letter asking that the painting be removed from the Biennial for its co-opting of black pain. The Museum temporarily removed the painting from its wall two weeks later due to a water leak.
