The Guggenheim’s first Black curator Chaédria LaBouvier is calling the New York City museum out for not acknowledging her historic feat last year when she became the first Black person to curate a solo exhibition inside their halls.

And it just so happens LaBouvier called them to the carpet as the museum attempted to participate in Blackout Tuesday, a day created by two Black executives in the music industry, urging companies to call out racism and discrimination as millions around the world are protesting police brutality after George Floyd’s murder.
