Hide/Seek: Museums, Ethics and the Press

The Institute of Museum Ethics in partnership with the Institute for Ethical Leadership of Rutgers Business School held a conference on Museums, Ethics, and the Press in Newark, New Jersey on April 9, 2011. The conference explored the recent controversy surrounding the National Portrait Gallery exhibition, “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” examining the various points at which decisions with ethical implications were made, looking at the impact of the media (print and electronic) on the controversy, and discussing if such instances of disagreement can become opportunities for constructive discourse.
