This Friday, the Guggenheim will present an exhibition of work by Palestinian artist Emily Jacir, winner of the 2008 Hugo Boss Prize. The New York Times had an interview with her on Saturday. They asked:
Q. Do you expect your Guggenheim exhibition to attract controversy?
A. Unfortunately I am afraid it might. I really hope not, but the reality of the situation is that the Palestinian narrative has been strictly censored in this country, so when it does get a chance to be told, people get really upset.
