Panel Discussion: Honoring Contributions, Recognizing Complexities

The question of whether to separate an artist’s contributions from the artist’s personal actions is nothing new. Caravaggio was an influential Baroque painter whose techniques have been said to change Western art, but he was violent and a murderer. Wagner was a composer who was known for expanding and bringing innovation to opera but was a noted anti-Semite and racist. Picasso, Hitchcock, Rowling…the list goes on. Can – and should – the artist be separated from the art? This panel discussion will provide a context for recognizing and honoring artists’ achievements while grappling with the complexities of their personal actions.
