Jan 19, 2022 | No Reserve

The No Reserve Team travels to Kansas City where Josh Baer sits down with Sean O’Harrow to discuss Jackson Pollock‘s Mural and Deaccessioning Art. Sean is currently the Director of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. Josh was particularly curious to discuss Sean’s previous position as Director the University of Iowa Museum of Art where he faced major challenges to save their prized masterpiece Jackson Pollock’s Mural from politicians looking to sell it off. They also discuss Sean’s current mindset at the Kemper and his views on other museums’ decisions around deaccessioning.
