Protest Forces The Museum of Modern Art to Shut Down


The Museum of Modern Art, New York

The Museum of Modern Art in New York shut its galleries unexpectedly this past Saturday, February 10, after hundreds of pro-Palestine protestors began a massive demonstration in the museum. 

Within fifteen minutes of the start of the protest and the ensuing activities—which included raising banners, chanting, and holding peaceful sit-ins with approximately 500 to 800 people—the galleries were closed and security guards turned visitors at the door away. According to Alexa Blair Wilkinson, a photojournalist at the protest, no arrests were made at MoMA.

The MoMA protest coincided with another demonstration in support of Palestine outside the Brooklyn Museum, organized by Within Our Lifetime Palestine. Four protesters were arrested at the Brooklyn protest, according to Hyperallergic.

At MoMA, it has been reported by various sources that at around 3:30 p.m., protesters began to hand out fake museum guides to visitors. According to social media, the guides read, “It breaks our hearts that genocide is what brings us together. We are gathered here at MoMA, on the 126th day of the escalated genocide in Gaza, in solidarity with the Palestinian people, to call for an end to Western culture’s complicity in genocide, apartheid, and settler colonialism.” It continued, “While MoMA purports ideologies of “change” and “creativity,” the Board of Trustees directly fund zionist occupation via arms manufacturing, lobbying, and corporate investment.” The guides called out five of the museum’s trustees—Leon Black, Larry Fink, Paul Crown, Marie-Josée Kravis, and Ronald S. Lauder—who, as the pamphlets allege, support and invest in Israeli military weaponry and technology, among other things.
