Controversial crucifix film part of NYC exhibition

After the controversy at the Portrait Gallery, the Smithsonian Institution’s governing board called for changes in how potentially objectionable exhibits are handled. The board said it must be prepared to handle museum disputes and guard freedom of curators in the face of political pressure from Congress or other groups.

“Hide/Seek” runs at the Brooklyn Museum through Feb. 12. Other contributing artists are Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Thomas Eakins and Annie Leibovitz. It will then travel to the Tacoma Art Museum in Washington state.
