The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston joins organizations across the country in protesting the decision by Smithsonian Institution to remove the video A Fire in My Belly by David Wojnarowicz from the show Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture at the National Portrait Gallery, following protests from conservative Republicans and Catholic groups. The original video will be shown followed by a panel discussion with Bill Arning, James Harithas, and Anne Wilkes Tucker who will discuss the work, the history of censorship in the arts, and its implications for today.
