Almost 200 artists, curators and museum workers have signed an open letter in support of curatorial freedom. The letter comes after Sandra Hegedüs, a longtime patron, resigned from the Amis du Palais de Tokyo and accused the institution of supporting ‘wokeism, anti-capitalism, pro-Palestine, etc’ in an Instagram post.

The open letter, which was first published on Monday to Le Monde, expresses support for Palais de Tokyo and ‘all cultural institutions facing these kinds of attacks around the world’. They continue, ‘Like art and artists, our cultural institutions must remain free, or else risk disappearing. To remain free, they must be able to work with the professionalism and peace of mind that allow them to provide the conditions for the confrontation of ideas that is at the heart of their mission.’
