Museums today are struggling with what to do when artists represented in their galleries are accused of sexual harassment or when artworks in their collections are viewed as problematic. #MeToo & the Arts offers audiences a series of public engagements that explore the intersection of #MeToo and the arts, with a focus of museums. Prompted by the ROM’s upcoming presentation of Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs, and an allegation of sexual misconduct made against the deceased artist, #MeToo & the Arts seeks to encourage a larger conversation about how museums, and the public, are engaging with art within the context of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements.

The artist will invite participants to join in felting a large scale textile evil eye. The textile evil eye will be made up of felted balls, which will each make up the full image of an evil eye. This relates to the theme solidarity in the BAM Exhibition because the piece cannot be made without the help of willing participants.
